Explicit texts offender avoids jail

Posted April 30, 2012 13:59:02

A man who sent explicit text messages to a teenager has been given a 15-month suspended jail sentence in the Adelaide District Court.

Anthony Charles Muscat, 52, pleaded guilty to transmitting child pornography.

The court heard he sent 135 texts to a 16-year-old girl last June, pretending to be a 19-year-old university student.

It heard the messages became increasingly explicit and he asked the girl if she had engaged in sexual activity and whether she would be willing to do so with him.

Judge Steven Millsteed said the messages were “vile and despicable” and the offending was serious.

He told Muscat he should appreciate how close he went to a jail term.

Muscat was given a 15-month sentence which was suspended for a two-year good behaviour bond.
