A children's entertainer from Walsall has appeared in court accused of internet sex offences involving young boys.
Jason William Gaunt, 22, who worked at holiday camps, was arrested after online-related offences involving five children between August 2008 and February this year.
He was charged after an investigation by Surrey Police's paedophile online investigation team with one count of sexual activity with a child, four counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and one count of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.
Gaunt, who did not enter pleas when he appeared at Redhill Magistrates' Court, is also charged with six counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child, two counts of attempting to engage in sexual activity in the presence of a child and one count of attempting to arrange sexual activity with a child.
The defendant faces a further 10 counts of making indecent images of a child, three counts of possession of indecent images of a child and one count of attempting to distribute an indecent photo of a child.
Gaunt, of Leander Close, Walsall, was given conditional bail and told to appear at the same court for a committal hearing on November 16, Surrey Police said.
