Man caught by peadophile hunters avoids jail sentence

Published

on

A LAMPETER man caught by paedophile hunters has escaped a jail sentence.

Peter Kundrak, aged 27, latched onto what he thought 13-year-old old girl called Amber and exchanged messages over the Internet.

But she turned out to be a ‘decoy’ posted by a group calling themselves Confronted and Caught.

Kundrak, of New Street, admitted attempting to incite an underage girl to engage in sexual activity.

He was made the subject of a two year community order and told to complete 30 days of a rehabilitation activity. He was also issued with a Sexual Harm Pevention Order to control his future behaviour.

John Hipkin, prosecuting, told Swansea crown court that Kundrak joined a chat room and swapped messages with ‘Amber’.

He sent her photographs of his penis and asked her to send him her underwear.

Kundrak also suggested meeting but, said Mr Hipkin, did not go through with the idea.

After three months he sent ‘Amber’ a message telling her he would get into trouble if someone discovered what he had been writing to a 13-year-old girl and ended the contact.

His barrister, Dyfed Thomas, said Kundrak had never really intended to meet the girl and had himself put a stop to what he had been doing.

He said Kundrak had already spent three months in custody following his arrest.

Judge Paul Thomas described Kundrak as a sick, inadequate fantasist who clearly had paedophile tendencies.

“Your conversations with what you believed to be a thirteen year old girl were disgusting,” he added.

PUPILS at Ysgol Bro Pedr have raised enough money to buy a defibrillator machine for the school.

The idea came after 15 Year 11 pupils achieved their Level 3 Emergency First Aid Qualification with Ceredigion Youth Service. Pupils felt that it was incredibly important that they and others at the school had the skills, knowledge and equipment to use in an emergency.

Mrs Caryl Jones and pupils raised an outstanding £1,150 through organising a bake sale at the school on 28 March 2019. The school extends their thanks to Lampeter businesses ‘Oh My Cod’ and ‘Y Becws’ for their kind contribution towards the sale.

Guto Crompton, School Based Youth Worker said: “Although first aid is not a mandatory part of the school curriculum in Wales, young people at Ysgol Bro Pedr felt that it should be something that all pupils knew about. This would help them to know what to do in an emergency, whether that be in the school or out in the community. Pupils worked hard to achieve their First Aid qualification which covered aspect such as CPR, casualty management and the use of a defibrillator.”

The defibrillator machine will be placed in the school reception.
