A perv who offered to make a £1,000 donation to help a disabled six-year-old girl walk in return for having sex with her MOTHER has been spared jail.
Creepy David Hill, 61, posted the message on a public Facebook page set up by Bernadette Speers.
The mum-of-three is trying to raise £20,000 to send her daughter Aimee-Leigh Groves to America for treatment.
A court heard Hill had earlier sent Ms Speers, who didn’t know him, explicit messages and photos of his genitals to both her personal Facebook page and the fund-raising page.
He then messaged her saying: “I’ll give you £100 for Aimee’s leg if you have sex with me, it should be £1,000.”
Hill, of Bentilee, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs., pleaded guilty to sending offensive messages when he appeared at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on Thursday (25/8).
But he was spared jail when he was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months.
He was also ordered to pay £500 compensation as well as £85 costs and a £115 victim surcharge.
Chair of the bench Louise Challinor said: “This is an absolutely appalling set of events.
“It was a very unpleasant experience for the lady in question.
“She felt fear and stress and she will have already been in a heightened state due to the circumstances of fund-raising for her disabled child.”
Ms Speers, 47, yesterday (Fri) welcomed the sentence and said the £500 would go towards the fund to send Aimee-Leigh to the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
The six-year-old needs life-changing treatment for a mystery condition that leaves her unable to walk or stand unaided which has baffled British doctors.
Ms Speers, who lives in Loggerheads, Staffs., said: “This was on a public fund-raising page, it was absolutely disgusting.
“I felt really scared and humiliated I started panicking when he threatened to come to the next fund-raising event.
“The messages and the pictures were really crude. People started to reply back to him but he showed no remorse.
“At one point I thought about giving up and closing the page but I’m determined to get her to America.
“I’m happy with the sentence, he hasn’t just been give a slap on the wrist.
“Now we can put this behind us and focus on the fund-raising.”
The court heard Hill sent the first messages on April 28 this year and then messaged again on May 2.
Prosecutor Sue Hayers said: “The victim was upset and angry, which prompted her to call the police.”
Angela Trafford, defending, added: “This was an isolated incident, over a short period of time and there has been no repeated behaviour.
“Mr Hill has been unable to give any real explanation for his actions.
“He has used adult forums in the past where perhaps this language may have been accepted.
“He is a gentleman who has just had a complete lapse of what is appropriate.”
Ms Speers, who has two other children Autumn, 14, and Daniel, eight, has managed to raise £5,000 towards her £20,000 target to send her daughter to America.
The mum-of-three, who is a full-time carer to Aimee-Leigh, added: “She was born like it but it is getting worse as she gets older.
“She can’t walk without help and she has seizures too. It is starting to affect her arms as well now.
“We have had no diagnosis in the UK so I am trying to raise the money to send her to Baltimore.
“It is a special clinic that diagnoses rare disorders so hopefully they will be able to diagnose her and then operate on her feet to help her walk.”
