Explicit video call seen by teen girls


A 19-year-old man living on a Gisburn caravan Park made a sexually explicit FaceTime connection – a video phone call – with a 16-year-old girl which was also viewed by her 13-year-old sister.

Blackburn magistrates heard the girls were sitting on the sofa together when the older sister received an image showing the torso of a male masturbating. After they told their mother what had happened, the call was traced back to Aaron Cenq Kucukcan.

Kucukcan, formerly of Todber caravan Site, Gisburn, and now of Derby Street, Colne, pleaded guilty to intentionally exposing his genitals intending someone would see them and be caused alarm or distress. He was committed on bail to Preston Crown Court to be sentenced.

Mr Andy Robinson (prosecuting) said the younger sister had received several messages from a male and eventually worked out he wanted her sister who previously used the mobile phone. She passed on her older sister’s new phone number.

“When they received the FaceTime communication they didn’t know who it was,” said Mr Robinson.

Miss Laura Heywood (defending) said Kucukcan knew the 16-year-old girl and had been talking to her on Facebook and over the phone.

“He says the messages had been a bit flirty but he overstepped the mark sending her this image,” said Miss Heywood. “He didn’t know the younger girl would be sitting with her older sister.”
