Kurtis Whaley, 24, from Manly Vale from northern Sydney pretended to be a year-old girl as he coerced boys. A catfisher who posed as a year-old girl to get boys as young as eight to send him explicit photos has been jailed for six years and four months. He was jailed on Tuesday for nine years and six months with a non-parole period of six years and four months, according to the Daily Telegraph. Judge Ian Bourke SC said Whaley enjoyed 'sadistic victimisation and the exercise of power' and that his actions were 'cruel and merciless'. Whaley apologised in a letter to the court for the pain he caused his victims, claiming he was struggling to come to terms with his sexuality at the time. He said he was open to rehabilitation after a doctor diagnosed him with sexual perversion, depression and anxiety. Whaley would go under the name of Beth and ignored the pleas from his victims to leave them alone.
