    WINNIPEG | Sentenced for luring teen girls, a pedophile has suggested that it was the fault of the judge if he had committed his crimes.

    According to the “Winnipeg Free Press”, David Thomas Pearson had been accused of luring of a child in 2011. The man had been posing as a teenager of 16 years on the internet to obtain nude pictures of young teenage girls.

    Pearson eventually pleaded guilty in January 2015, but remained at liberty until may 2016, in waiting to receive his sentence. During this period, he took advantage of her freedom to continue her activities of predation on the web by continuing to pretend to be a teenager to get nude photos of a minor.

    “I probably wouldn’t be here today if I had been imprisoned, and that I had the opportunity to reflect on what I’ve done,” said the man at the time of receiving a new prison sentence on Friday for crimes committed during his period of freedom.

    David Thomas Pearson would have “learned from his mistakes” if he had heard the stories of its victims earlier, he added, addressing the judge Tim Killeen.

    The pedophile has been found guilty of eight charges, including six decoy. He has been sentenced to five years and nine months in prison. Due to the time already spent behind bars, he still has four years and eight months to be served.
