Stratford sex offender pleads guilty to child enticement, records show | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

Paul Sastrum, 36, pleaded guilty Tuesday to enticing a minor by computer. The plea was made as part of a deal in which he would be sentenced to five years in custody, execution suspended after 3½ years served, followed by 30 years of probation, court records indicate. 

Sastrum, who was being held in lieu of $250,000 bail, is scheduled to next appear remotely for a hearing on Jan. 30, 2024, according to court records. 

Sastrum is a registered sex offender and was on probation at the time of the incident, according to his arrest warrant. The registry says he was convicted of two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault of a minor in 2004 and one count of second-degree possession of child pornography in 2008. 

His latest plea stems from a YouTube video in which a group of individuals claimed to have been corresponding with him online, one posing as a 14-year-old boy. The video was taken in the parking lot of a CVS on Post Road East on Dec. 21, 2021, when Sastrum agreed to meet with the individual posing as the young teen, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.
