A Queensland tradesman who asked a pre-teen girl for nude photos as a birthday present had only celebrated the birth of his first child three months earlier. Jamie Robert Lanskey, 31, avoided jail for grooming a year-old girl online, despite his interactions being described at Cairns District Court as 'sexual and disgusting'.

Lanskey told his victim he was 21 years old when they began talking in March Within three days of the conversation the victim's parents discovered the messages and reported the incident to police. But it took almost a year before any charges could be laid as officers sought to uncover whether any other children had been targeted.
Lanskey faced Cairns District Court this week where he was given a suspended 18 month jail sentence. Crown prosecutor Jodie Crane told the court Lanskey asked the girl why he 'didn't get my present' when she refused to send him naked photos.
