Blackmailer of a 17 year old girl has been jailed

MERSEYSIDE Police have welcomed the sentencing of Levere David Hinds, 56 years, from Bootle, who has been jailed for 3 years, 8 months. Hinds was convicted of blackmail of a 17 year old girl and the taking and distributing of indecent images of a 17 year old girl and sending malicious communications. He appeared at Liverpool Crown Court, on Monday, 22 May 2017 and was sentenced to 2 years, 8 months for blackmail, 8 months for taking/distributing indecent images and 4 months for sending malicious communications. The incidents took place between November 2016 and February 2017. Speaking after the sentencing of Hinds at Liverpool Crown Court, Detective Inspector Susan Ennis from the Protecting Vulnerable People Unit said:- "Merseyside Police take sexually exploitation very seriously and have specially trained officers who can offer support for all victims. Child Sexual Exploitation ('CSE') is a terrible crime which can affect any family, anywhere. We are, however, determined to play our part in tackling the problem. The force is committed to the protection and wider safeguarding issues of young people, and in doing so we will work with partner agencies to investigate and where possible prevent such abuse. Every one of us has to play our part in putting a stop to the sexual exploitation of children and we all need to know the signs to look for, including:- if they are regularly missing School or College, appearing with unexplained gifts and money, mood swings and becoming secretive about their use of social media."

Anyone who would like to report a sexual offence or who has information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on:- 101 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
