Bruce Gordon Gyde
Bruce Gordon Gyde pleaded guilty, of having sexual intercourse with a girl under 16 years of age. He was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment.
The victim in this matter was 15 years old. She grew up with her immediate family but moved to another city to live during the week or at least during term time with her grandparents, for schooling reasons. At the beginning of 2005, you started communicating with her through a text chat room. You said initially that you were 25 and she told you that she was 16. In January you met and you had sexual intercourse and you took some photographs of her. You then continued communicating both via texting and using the Internet. At some point, you told her that you were 35 and that led her to confess to you that she was, in fact, 15. You were actually 42.
The communication between you, from you to her in particular, became very sexual and covered areas of ado-masochism, including bondage and master/slave relationships. The terminology that you used, and the way you addressed her, was consistent with that. You sent her what was called a slave contract and asked her to sign it and she did.
You sent her instructions and one of them included directing her to visit one of your associates to perform oral sex on him and to take photographs of that. She did that. You arranged to meet her once again and you had sexual intercourse at that time, knowing that she was only 15. Her family then became aware of what was happening and put a stop to it.
