A 60- year-old UK man pitched up with a sex toy to a Midland McDonald’s restaurant to meet a schoolgirl he met online. However, he was in for a shock as the man Keith Hogan, had actually been talking to police officers.
According to a report in NottinghamshireLive, the pervert was caught at the fast food chain in Markeaton Park, Derby, where he thought he was going for sex reports. However, he found himself surrounded by plain clothes police officers.
Hogan was caught after he had signed up to Kik Messenger, a free instant messaging and social networking app. The “child” he thought he was chatting with was actually an undercover police officer.
Hogan wiped away tears as he was given a sexual harm prevention order and and told he will have to sign the sex offenders’ register for five years. A community order was set at three years, he must do a sex offender accredited programme for 43 days as well as complete 60 rehabilitation activity days.

Although she pretended she was 13 years old, Hogan, of Patricia Drive, Arnold, carried on making sexual conversation and sent a phallic picture and a video of him performing a sexual act. Hogan later said he wanted to make an effort “with nothing in mind” and they were talking for three weeks.

It began as a genuine chat with sexual innuendo. When he was shown the images and videos he sent to her, he referred to himself as “a dirty old man who needs locking up” ,and agreed he was a threat to children.
Hogan, who currently lives with his mother in Nottingham but plans to move to Lincoln to try to rekindle a relationship, went on to plead guilty to three offences which include attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child, attempting to cause a child to watch a sexual act and attempting to meet a girl under 16 years after sexual grooming.
Matt Hayes, mitigating, said Hogan’s risk could be managed in the community and he had engaged with a counsellor. Judge Stuart Rafferty QC then told a shamed Hogan: “You made a choice to do what you did. You were prepared to take risks in doing that and you were targeting children who you believed to be as young as 13.
“You set out to go to meet a 13-year-old child armed with contraception and a sex toy, although how they can be called toys I can never understand”. In the meantime, the judge referred to the defendant also having chats with two other children, who he believed to be 14 years old.
He warned that, if the child had been real, he would be going to prison for many years.
He reminded Hogan he is 60 years of age, so if this relationship happened, it would be akin to a grandfather and his grandchild, (if they were related), and he added “what an appalling prospect”. “How did this case come about? Because you were sexually unfulfilled.
