An Indian man who used the internet to groom teenagers has been sentenced to 15 months in jail.

Tegveer Sandhu, 24, pleaded guilty in the Victorian County Court to using a carriage service to groom a child under 16 and using a carriage service to transmit indecent communication.

The court heard Sandhu used the pseudonym of ‘DickMelb’ in a chat room website in March 2012.

He admitted to being in contact with a 13-year-old girl.

He had sexually explicit conversations with her and sent her graphic photos.

In one instance, he asked if she was a virgin and intended to meet up with her.

The girl was an undercover police officer masquerading as a teenager as part of an ongoing investigation.

Police later discovered records of other chat room conversations he had with a 15-year-old girl.

The sentencing judge said Sandhu had been disinhibited by the affect of anonymity provided by the internet and alcohol use.

Sandhu was sentenced to 15 months in jail, but will be released on a reconnaissance bond after serving 6 months.
