British woman, 21, jailed for disguising herself as teen boy to prey on girls online

Approved ~~ MJM

A British woman who prosecutors say disguised herself as a teen boy to trick potentially dozens of underage girls and groom them into having sexual contact with her, drew prison time Friday.

Gemma Watts, 21, who created an online persona as Jake Waton, a 16-year-old boy, was sentenced to eight years in prison on Friday. She pleaded guilty in November to seven charges of sexual offenses involving four girls – three 15-year-olds and one 14-year-old.

Met Police said Watts used her online alter ego – which they described as very believable – to strike up relationships with the girls.
