- Louis Davison pretended to be 15 to with girls aged 13 to 15 on social media site
- He asked one to send him a video of herself carrying out a sex act, court heard
- Davison, of Kenton Bar, Newcastle, jailed for two years after admitting charges
A woman who suspected her boyfriend was cheating on her discovered he was sending sexually explicit messages to underage girls after logging into his Instagram account.
Paedophile Louis Davison was jailed for two years after a court heard he pretended to be 15 years old to chat with girls aged from 13 to 15 on the social media site.
Davison asked a 13-year-old to send him a video of herself carrying out a sexual act during an exchange of messages in 2018, Newcastle Crown Court was told.
And in two Instagram conversations in 2019 he asked two girls, aged 13 and 14 or 15, about what sexual activity they’d engaged in.
Davison, now 22, was discovered last year when his girlfriend noticed he was spending a lot of time on his phone and suspected him of having an affair.
Prosecutor Emma Dowling said the couple split up and Davison left.
The court heard his ex-partner still had access to his Instagram account and checked it ‘because of her suspicion’.

Ms Dowling said the woman was shocked to see two accounts where Davison appeared to be pretending to be 15 years old and engaging in sexual communication with girls ‘about 13 years old’.
Davison’s ex-partner took screenshots of the accounts and reported the matter to the police, also finding a phone behind a panel which she believed was his.
The court heard that in an exchange of messages in April 2018, Davison spoke to a profile for a girl who said she was 13 years old.
Ms Dowling said he asked the girl to send videos of her performing a sex act and that the two ‘discussed having intercourse at some point in the future’.
The court heard in an Instagram conversation from 2019, Davison told another girl he was 15, when he was in fact 20.
He asked the girl what sexual activity she’d engaged in and if she would perform a sex act for him. She then sent him a video.
In another exchange on Instagram in 2019, Davison spoke to a girl who told him she was 13. He replied that he was 15 and also asked if she wanted to watch him perform a sex act.
‘Chat logs show he tried to contact other young girls but they refused to engage in such conversation with him,’ Ms Dowling said.

The court heard Davison first told police ‘it was all a ruse to get out of the relationship,’ but later admitted sending ‘dirty’ messages and pretending to be 15, because ‘it was more likely the girls would respond’.
Police managed to trace the two girls from the chats in 2019, but could not trace the 13-year-old girl Davison spoke to in 2018.
Davison, of Eland Close, Kenton Bar, Newcastle, pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to incite a 13-year-old girl to engage in sexual activity, and two counts of sexual communication with underage females.
Penny Hall, defending, said Davison was ‘still a young man’ who was ‘struggling to explain his actions by sending these messages’.
She said: ‘He can’t explain why he got himself into conversation with younger people.’
Ms Hall said the author of a pre-sentence report for Davison described him as having a ‘level of immaturity and naivety’.
Judge Robert Adams sentenced Davison to two years in jail, saying his offences were ‘too serious for a suspended sentence’.
