    Computer-Generated 10-Year-Old Girl Leads to Conviction of Online Predator

    An Australian registered sex offender is reportedly the first person convicted on pedophilia charges that resulted after an international children’s rights group carried out an undercover operation using a computer-generated child.

    Scott Robert Hansen pleaded guilty to three charges in Brisbane District Court. He admitted to sending the fake girl, “Sweetie,” obscene pictures of himself; having images of child abuse on his computer; and failing to comply with a sex offenders order.

    He was sentenced to two years in prison, will be subject to a yearlong correction order and will have to undergo a sex offender treatment program.

    Hansen’s case dates back to 2013 when a Dutch charity called Terre des Hommes orchestrated a 10-week sting using Sweetie, a computer-generated, 10-year-old Filipina girl. The group intended to expose predators guilty of what they call “webcam child sex tourism”: men from rich countries paying children in poorer countries to perform sexual acts in front of webcams.

    By capturing moments from a real person, such as typing, nodding and shifting, charity workers were able to create a lifelike computer-model child, controlling her as needed. The following video takes you through the process of creating and using Sweetie for the sting.

    During the operation, nearly 20,000 men contacted Sweetie, 1,000 of whom offered her money to take off her clothes in front of her webcam. The 1,000 predators came from 71 different countries, with 254 from the U.S., 110 from the U.K., 103 from India, 54 from Canada, 46 from Australia and 44 from Germany.
