- David Hanson passed out during meeting with Dark Justice in Newcastle
- Thought he would be meeting ‘Amanda’ after contacting profile on Badoo
- He had been exchanging explicit messages in days before the meeting
- But it was organised by group and he has now received community order
A pervert collapsed on camera when he turned up to meet a 14-year-old girl he had been grooming online – but was instead confronted by a vigilante group.
David Hanson, 45, from Benwell, Newcastle, passed out when he realised that the girl he believed he had been communicating with was in fact online paedophile hunters Dark Justice.
Hanson – who has since lost his job and his home – had been exchanging explicit messages in the days before the meeting, which he attended with a rucksack containing a toothbrush, toothpaste and condoms.
Newcastle Crown Court was told by prosecutor Anne Richardson how Hanson contacted the fake profile of an 18-year-old girl called Amanda set up by Dark Justice on dating website Badoo.
