Girls as young as 12 were blackmailed online by a predator to become his “sex slaves.”

A ‘twisted’ and ‘cruel’ paedophile who blackmailed girls as young as 12 to be his ‘sex slaves’ has been jailed for 18 years.

Jordan Croft, 26, admitted 65 offences involving 26 victims who were forced to send photos and videos of themselves performing sexual and degrading acts.

In a powerful statement to Lewes Crown Court, one victim said she hoped Croft would ‘burn in hell’.

Croft, from Worthing in West Sussex, posed as a 12-year-old boy online with the intention of ‘dominating and controlling’ young girls, according to the National Crime Agency (NCA).

The paedophile was in contact with more than 5,000 people on one particular online platform.

He forced his victims to sexually abuse themselves and others and would demand they urinate and defecate over themselves to satisfy his ‘toilet kink’, according to the NCA. Some of the victims were even forced to gargle urine and perform enemas on themselves.

He pleaded guilty today to the charges of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, blackmail, making unwarranted demands for indecent images of children, intentionally causing or inciting the sexual exploitation of a child, and making more than 900 indecent images of children in categories A to C.

As well as being sentenced to 18 years in prison and a further eight years on licence, he will also be placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.

He will also be subject to an indefinite sexual harm prevention order and a restraining order preventing him from contacting his victims.

Martin Ludlow, senior investigating officer at the NCA, called Croft a ‘prolific offender who has caused heart-breaking suffering to many victims and their families’.
