A 21-year-old British man who admitted having sex with two underage girls he met on the Internet was jailed for nine years on Thursday.
Lee Costi, from Haslemere in Surrey, southern England, was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court after also admitting possessing 41 indecent images of children and two counts of taking indecent pictures of children.
Costi was caught after a 14-year old girl from Nottingham he was trying to seduce reported him on an international Web site set up to tackle online abuse of children.
Police said Costi was the first offender to be sentenced in the UK after being identified through the Virtual Global Taskforce Web site.
The site, www.virtualglobaltaskforce.com, is monitored around the clock by law enforcement bodies from Interpol, Britain, Australia, Canada and the United States.
