Wife Posed as Teen to Trap Husband

A British woman posed as a 14-year old girl online to trap her husband. When the wife became suspicious of the time her husband was spending online, 61-year old Cheryl Roberts logged-on to the computer in another room and, posing as a 14-year old girl, engaged her 68-year old husband, David Roberts, in a chatroom.

After her husband used a webcam to broadcast himself performing sex acts and asked his wife (whom he though was a teenage girl) to meet for sex, Mrs. Roberts called police. Mr. Roberts assumed he had been caught downloading child porn images and movies, which police found on his computer; it was only weeks later that he discovered his wife was involved.

David Roberts told authorities he had not had sex with anyone underage, but was "prepared to do so." He also did not know why he began behaving in such a manner and welcomed treatment. He was sentenced to three years probation and denied contact with any persons under the age of 18.

The couple has since split.
