Airbnb in Old Ellerby East Yorkshire hired by sex offender | United Kingdom | New
Adam Plant, 42, was sentenced earlier this month for fiddling with a 13 year old girl and sending her a series of sexualized texts. However, throughout the police investigation, the father of two earned money by renting out his six-bedroom house, huge backyard, and hot tub.
The property is particularly popular with bachelorette parties and gangs of friends, who were unaware of the grim crime of the man sleeping in the garden.
And the angry mother of her teenage victim said Live shell it is “disgusting” to know that people are paying to “line the pockets of a convicted pedophile”. The house, which is in Old Ellerby, East Yorkshire, costs £ 510 per night.
According to a recent review, Plant hosted his guests and was “always available” because he lives in the trailer on site.
But now, after learning about Plant’s criminal record, Airbnb has taken ownership of its listings.
Plant will be condemned to sexual activity with a girl under 16, sexual communication with a child and misuse of the course of justice later this month.
He has been described as a “fantastic host” in reviews left on Airbnb
A guest, who booked the property in July, said: “We booked Adam’s property for my bachelorette party and it was amazing. The kitchen / diner is a great space for entertaining and the kitchen has everything you need and more!
“Adam was a fantastic host and communication has been great since we booked. Very cool, helpful and was there in case we needed him, but otherwise we had our own space and privacy all the time.”
Plant recently advertised his home to over-18s only, in accordance with his bail conditions, but failed to inform guests of why the property is classified as “for adults only.”
The house is described as “a fantastic spacious home for a party or a relaxing break for over 18s only. The sun terrace and seating area at the rear of the house are perfect for afternoon barbecues. /evening.”
But the mother of the teenage victim of the man complained to Airbnb.
“People should know, I know I wouldn’t want to stand there knowing what he did,” she said.
The mom, who made her beliefs known to Airbnb, added: “I don’t think people would want to stay there if they knew.
“His bail conditions mean he has to reside there in a mobile home on the property. It is said that only 18 year olds can stay there and he had to change that, but he could still be kinky on young women. .
“People pay money and line their pockets and don’t realize he’s a convicted pedophile, that’s not true. It’s sickening to see how he makes all that money praising him.
“They need to be informed as I’m sure they wouldn’t want to pay £ 510 a night when a convicted pedophile sleeps in the garden.
Airbnb said it immediately removed ownership from its website when contacted by Hull Live.
A statement from Airbnb said, “The safety of our community is our top priority, and we removed the user from the platform as soon as the matter came to our attention.”
