A Fylde coast sex offender is set to be sentenced today.

Kevin Christie, 40, formerly of Thornton, will appear at Preston Crown Court after he was found guilty of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and possessing an indecent image of a child following a trial last month.

The first offence took place on January 18 2012 when Christie incited a 13-year-old girl via Blackberry Messenger to engage in sexual activity.

The second offence was discovered when Christie was arrested on suspicion of the first offence on March 3 last year.

Officers found an indecent image of a 14-year-old girl following analysis of Christie’s mobile phone.
