Liam Hull, aged 22, targeted scores of men using the site for his wicked demands.

Having made contact with his victims, some of whom were married with children and who were secretly using the site Grindr, Hull would threaten to expose them unless they paid him money.

A UK judge at Luton Crown Court has praised the bravery of 3 gay men (only referred to in court as A, B and C) who came forward to expose a 22 year-old blackmailer, who used Grindr to extort money from his victims.

Liam Hull, unemployed, from Luton, who pleaded guilty to three counts of blackmail, had been using the gay dating site to target gay men who were not out, some with wives and children, and in one case, the gay man had to confess to his wife after 20 years of marriage.

When he was arrested he was living in rented accomodation and was on benefits.

The court was told how in July of 2015, Hull had been convicted of an offence of making a false representation after contacting a man he had met through the website Grindr site and asking for £200 from him to meet, but then failed to turn up.

In 2014, he had accepted a police caution for pursuing a course of conduct, which amounted to harrassment, by threatening to put pictures on Facebook of a man who had been in contact with him regarding sexual matters.

As he passed sentence today, Judge Richard Foster paid tribute to the bravery of victims A, B and C, who had come forward "to ensure that justice was done in this case." Please note - all court copies are provided by South Beds News Agency, who retain the copyright for all articles published.

Judge Richard Foster sentenced Hull to two and a half years, and quoted Lord Lane that blackmail was one of the most ugly and vicious of criminal offences, and it involved “the attempted murder of the soul”.

The court heard that Hull would target married men, and once having initial contact details, would then use social media to find out more about his victims.

I am a cultured individual who likes reading (novels, essays and comics.), loves music and porn. a libido that the wife sometimes can't or won't fulfill.
