grooming

the winnning of the confidence of a victim in order to commit a sexual assault on him or her, now a specific criminal offence. Although the most well-known stories are about the use of e-mail or chat rooms the offence may be committed by communication using any means and may be initiated from anywhere in the world. A person (A) aged 18 or over commits an offence if having met or communicated with another person (B) on at least two earlier occasions, he:
  1. (i) intentionally meets B; or
  2. (ii) travels with the intention of meeting B in any part of the world;
  3. (iii) at the time, he intends to do anything to or in respect of B, during or after the meeting and in any part of the world, which if done will involve the commission by A of a relevant offence;
  4. (iv) B is under 16:
  5. (v) A does not reasonably believe that B is 16 or over.
