A RESTRAINING order has been made against a Bury St Edmunds teenager after he sent sexually suggestive messages to young girls.

Magistrates sitting at Bury Youth Court banned 18-year-old Peter Hughff from contacting any of the five teenagers.

They also sentenced him to a youth rehabilitation order with supervision for 12 months, and ordered Hughff to pay £85 costs.

Hughff, of Manning Road, appeared in court for sentencing on Wednesday having admitted three charges of sending an offensive, indecent or obscene message to girls in Bury, Brandon and a West Suffolk village.

He also asked for two similar offences against two other girls to be taken into consideration.

Nikki Miller, prosecuting, said he messaged one girl telling her he would have sex with her while she slept and that he was wearing her knickers.

The girl told how he had been ‘desperate to wear her clothes’. “She describes him as seeming a little strange and not the full ticket,” Ms Miller said.

Another girl said: “He was always talking about sex and how many girls he had had.”

She described how he wanted to try on make up. He also sent her indecent messages.

Both girls were left worried by what happened, Ms Miller said.

She added that all of the girls were under 18 and that some were as young as 15.

But Claire Lockwood, in mitigation, said no ‘serious’ sexual harm was caused.

“These offences are unpleasant and they are serious in their own right but they don’t involve any physical acts or anything of that nature,” she said.
