Plymouth teenager to be treated after 'Facebook sex' with child
A TEENAGER incited a younger girl to engage in sexual activity over a social networking website, a court heard.
Stephen Wooster, aged 19, had explicit conversations with the girl on Facebook over several months. He also persuaded another girl to send him indecent pictures of herself.
Judge Graham Cottle, sitting at Plymouth Crown Court, said Wooster needed treatment. He gave him a two-year community order under probation supervision with the Thames Valley Sex Offender Programme.
Wooster, of Bridwell Road, Weston Mill, admitted causing or inciting a child under the age of 16 to engage in sexual activity between January and May last year. He also pleaded guilty to four counts of possessing and making indecent images of a child.

Andrew Maitland, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said Wooster and the girl had "highly explicit conversations" on Facebook.
He added their dialogue referred to full sex.
Judge Cottle said the girl "was reciprocating" in the conversations.
Mr Maitland added that Wooster asked another younger girl to send explicit images of herself over email, which she did. Judge Cottle said: "The view I take at this point is to deal with this by means of delivering the treatment you need."
