Alistair Chapman

Alistair Chapman, a violent male transvestite, was convicted of multiple child sex offences at Maidstone Crown Court in 2019 – two of arranging the commission of a child sex offence, one of attempting to meet a female under 16 following grooming, and one of attempting to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Chapman, 29 was sentenced to three years in prison on 15 August, and will be subject to a sexual harm prevention order for five years. He must also sign on the sex offender register indefinitely on his release.

Chapman had groomed and sent disturbing sexualised messages via WhatsApp to a girl named ‘Lucy’ whom he believed to be 14 years old. The chatlogs ran to 400 pages in the court documents and described binding, kidnapping and impregnating the child. He also sent the girl videos of himself tied up and wearing a dress. In fact, he was messaging a group of paedophile hunters named Shadow Hunters UK.

The group reported him to the police when he drove from his home in Portland, Dorset to meet ‘Lucy’ near a station in Kent.

Jailing him, Judge Stephen Thomas said his behaviour was ‘extreme and inexcusable’. “In the course of conversations with the girl you described penetrative sex with her and other practices which you intended to carry out.” “You were telling her that you would bind her up, take her back to your flat, put her in a cupboard and detain her.” He also noted that Chapman had shown “a considerable degree of planning” in bringing his “fantasy kidnap” to fruition.

Shadow Hunters also caught another trans-identified male sex offender, David Edwards, who was also convicted of multiple child sex offences in August 2019.

In common with several other trans-identified males documented on this site, Chapman appears to have fetished school uniform, asking ‘Lucy’ to bring hers with her. See for example, Geoffrey Holyoake, Mark Lazarus, Lana Laws and Peter Trigger.
