A paedophile has had his sentencing postponed so he can go on holiday in the Lake District.Last week, Kristopher Cook was scheduled to be sentenced for attempting “penetrative sexual activity” with a child. However instead, he has been told he is free to go away with his family.
Cook will now be sentenced a week later in a move dubbed a ‘joke’ by paedophile hunter group Dark Justice. A spokesperson said: “What sort of message does that send out to victims? He’s been told to go and enjoy himself, when any potential victims may have had their lives ruined. He has committed a crime so he should be punished, not told to go on holiday.”
Unshaven Cook stood largely silent in the dock as he entered his plea at the brief hearing. The South Shields sex offender pleaded guilty to attempting to engage a child under 16 in sexual activity at a hearing on March 14. The 24-year-old was warned he faced jail by Judge Amanda Rippon, who then agreed to the defence’s request of a delay for the pre-booked break.
