“blatant and disgusting”, the judge added:
“The level to which you sank, Mr Tetley, was unbelievable.”
One of Dannys victims who had sent images at the time Danny was still appearing on television was a genuine fan of Dannys. The court heard that he had received videos from Danny of the cast of XFactor as part of the grooming process.
Danny Tetley also told another boy that he often forgot he was only 14 years old, saying “It is because you are so sound”, “and you are one of the lads” said Danny.”You’ve got a friend for life, mate, I will always help you out.”
Although not being proposed by Danny, two of the boys performed sexual acts on camera with one another in exchange for more money from Danny – the prosecutor confirmed.
The West Yorkshire Police who work closely with their partner agencies are committed to dealing with the sexual exploitation and abuse of children.
“We hope that Danny Tetleys sentencing will act as encouragement for others to come forward with confidence that their reporting will be fully supported and fully investigated to help bring child sex offenders to justice.”
