'Wolf fetish' sex offender jailed
Kristian Timmerman, a 32-year-old man who had a "fetish for dressing as a wolf", has been jailed for 22 months for the sexual grooming of a 12-year-old girl. [Ellonwye/Furrydrama2]
Timmerman spent months sending her flattering messages and cartoons, and moved from the Netherlands to Liverpool, England, where the girl lived. Although she did not reveal her exact address, he determined it by examining photographs the girl had posted of her dog.
Timmerman was twice seen cycling past the girl's house, and went on to leave items in her back garden, including Easter eggs, a toy dinosaur, money, letters, and a USB memory stick. After finding the letters, the girl's parents contacted the police.
When the police arrested Timmerman, they found "a rubber costume with a wolf's head" amongst his belongings, and they claim "he had a fetish for dressing up as a wolf to perform sex acts on animals".
Judge Nicholas Woodward said that Timmerman had "used determination and subterfuge" in his attempts to contact the girl, and sentenced him, after he admitted to sexual grooming, to 22 months imprisonment, plus a concurrent four-week sentence for possession of extreme pornography.
Although Timmerman had an empty account on Fur Affinity, and furry pictures and a photo of a fursuit (not shown to be his) in a Facebook album, he does not seem to have been actively involved in the furry fandom.
