Cops threaten Coventry paedophile catcher Stinson Hunter with legal action 4 Feb 2014 15:13

Warwickshire Police sent crime fighter letter warning him to stop taking law into his own hands


Stinson Hunter

Police have threatened crime fighter Stinson Hunter with legal action if he doesn’t stop what he’s doing immediately.

The online paedophile hunter has been sent a letter warning him he could end up being taken to court himself for taking the law into his own hands.

Warwickshire Police’s assistant chief constable Karen Manners criticises the 32-year-old’s methods, saying he “could be compromising police investigations without knowing that you are doing so”.

The letter, which has been seen by The Telegraph, also says Hunter’s actions pose a serious risk to his targets and their families - and the evidence he provides is not good enough to secure successful prosecutions.

Hunter - who operates from the Coventry and Warwickshire area - has already responded to the letter.

It’s the first time the paedophile hunter has been threatened with legal action even though he’s carried out several stings in the last few months.

Asked if he was going to stop what he is doing Hunter responded: “No.

“Watch the videos - I’m not doing anything wrong, certainly nothing against the law. There are some where I shout a bit, but they were filmed a long time ago.

“It’s frustrating. This isn’t just about catching people, it’s about making the government and other agencies realise that this is a big problem.

“I don’t want to do this, but I feel that I have to.”

The letter goes on to threaten Hunter with a costs order if Warwickshire Police take him to court, potentially saddling him with a huge legal bill.

If he doesn’t hang up his video camera for good the force say it will have no option but to consider “injunctive proceedings” against Hunter “to obtain a court order preventing such future conduct”.

The letter also states: “As you have previously stated that your motivation for undertaking this activity includes financial reward, we are sure that you would not want to risk being ordered to pay significant legal costs.”

But Hunter dismissed that claim, saying he has never been in it for the money.

“I don’t make anything from this,” he said. “I got £1,500 from The Sun in February last year, I’ve never hidden that.

“I’m not being paid for the documentary.”

Warwickshire Police have secured a conviction with evidence provided by Hunter while at least one more case is going through the courts but elsewhere other cases have collapsed.
