Kent: Glen Schulz sentenced to more than six years in prison at Maidstone Crown Court for intended sex offences

A pervert travelled almost 5,000 miles from Canada to the UK intending to have sex with two young children, a court heard.

But Glen Schulz walked into a trap set by the Child Exploitation Team of Kent Police when he arrived at Gatwick Airport.

The “father” the 38-year-old Canadian thought he was meeting took him to a Costa cafe at the airport and bought him a coffee before officers arrived and arrested him.

Schulz was found to be a danger when he appeared at Maidstone Crown Court today (Mon) and was jailed for six years and eight months.

Under the extended sentence for public protection he will be on licence for a further two years. He will have to serve two thirds of the custodial term before being considered for release.

Schulz, from Vancouver, admitted arranging the commission of a child sex offence and distributing child sex abuse images.

Prosecutor Alex Rooke said Schulz had been convicted in Canada of child pornography offences involving pseudo images of mannequins and latex models of children. The pictures were of children being abused as if real.

In the latest offence, an officer posed as a father of two girls aged five and eight in an internet chatroom and Schulz responded.

He said he was willing to travel to have “fun” with the children. He also sent images of children, one as young as two, being abused.

“He detailed in graphic and salacious detail what he wished to do with these small girls,” said Mr Rooke.

Arrangements were made for Schulz to fly to the UK. He arrived on the morning of May 21 this year and was met by the “father”. When arrested, he claimed he was in the country only to meet a friend.

But said Mr Rooke: “There was a significant degree of planning and a considerable amount of determination to get to the perverted goal in mind.”

Passing sentence, Judge Jeremy Carey said Schulz had come to the UK “for one purpose and one purpose only”, which was sexual contact with children.

“That is what you believed and hoped very much would happen,” he said. “These offences plainly are very serious indeed.

“The very uttering of these various matters should revolt any right-minded person listening to these sentencing remarks. I doubt whether it revolts you.

“I have no hesitation in reaching the conclusion you are a dangerous offender.”

A sexual harm prevention order was made and Schulz’s name will appear on the sex offenders’ register.
