Ex RTE groomer Kieran Creaven due to be released

The former RTE producer who was jailed after being caught trying to groom what he thought was a young girl is set to be released from his English prison cell next week. He is expected to return to Ireland and live in Co Galway.

Can someone please explain why judges hand out sentences that never get carried out? Why is he free after half his sentence?

No mention but I’d expect he will be required to be registered on the sex offenders register.

Let's be honest here, he'll probably be back working in RTE this time next year.

While the term Sex Offenders Register is commonly used in Ireland, there is in fact no such register and the term is not included in any section of the Sex Offenders Act 2001. The only information on the whereabouts of sex offenders in Ireland which is held centrally by the Gardaí is a certificate issued by the court in relation to those convicted by the court of sexual offenses.

I had heard about this guy before but didn't know much about him aside from the fact he was caught trying to meet a young girl.

In looking him up though:

Quote:
Creaven, who the court heard was living in a “cyber world of pornography”, had two boxes of condoms, a list of female names and two phones on his person when he was arrested.

The online conversation was described as “prolonged” by the prosecution; it began in July 2017 and ended in November 2017.

He admitted he had made online contact with 15 to 20 teenage girls, aged between 13 and 18 years of age, blackmailing some of them by threatening to release information about them on Facebook.

Kitty Colley, prosecuting, said: “He said he would talk to children online and at times buy credit for their phones so they could talk to him, but when they blocked him he would do something as revenge, such as put on Facebook that they had sent him naked photos.”
Sounds like a right psycho.

"And the details graphically outlined in court were horrendous. The last ten years spent watching online the most abusive images of children - some as young as eight, being tortured and raped."

I feel sick reading this. This scumbag doesn't deserve to see the light of day.

I think I recall reading that there was a separate Garda investigation happening here in parallel to the trial / investigation in the UK. I am pretty sure he will be facing new charges here on his return?

I'd say he won't last long, he'll get battered anywhere he goes.
