Castel-Nuovo had arranged to meet and commit sexual abuse with an 11-year-old child following conversations online and had travelled from Nottingham but was instead met by SEROCU officers. 

The 48-year-old was found to have brought sweets, condoms, lubricant, wet wipes and baby oil with him. No real children were involved or harmed in the operation. 

He was charged with arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sexual offence on the same day (17/5).

On Friday (24) Castel-Nuovo pleaded guilty at a hearing at Southampton Crown Court. He was sentenced on the same day to two-and-a-half years’ imprisonment, issued with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life. 

Detective Inspector James Oxley, from SEROCU, said: “Castel-Nuovo’s conviction following a proactive SEROCU investigation reflects our continued priority to protect children from sexual exploitation from those who seek to do them harm.

“HH Judge Burrell commented on the awful nature of the offence and the impact it had on his family, who were present in court. He will now spend time in prison where he can reflect upon his actions. 

“If you or anyone you know has been a victim of child sexual abuse, please report it to your local police force. We will always follow up allegations of abuse, no matter when they occurred. Victims can talk in confidence to experienced Investigators and we can also help with access to a range of other support services.”
