A 26-year-old from Wales, U.K., was spared from jail due to his small stature. Bryan Anthony Bowen, who is a dwarf, was kept out of jail despite pleading guilty to two counts of inciting a child to carry out a sex act.

Reports said Bowen had approached two teenage girls on Facebook and incited them to carry out sex acts online. He sent the girls obscene messages and asking them for pictures of themselves naked.

According to the Sun, Bowen had sent messages to a 15-year-old girl saying, "Do you want to f---?" and "I will f--- you for your birthday present." The girl had tried to block him but then received another message on her 16th birthday, which read: “I will f ---- you for your birthday present.”

It was after this obscene birthday message that the girl contacted police. Later, when police searched Bowen’s laptop they found that he had previously approached a 13-year-old girl with a series of inappropriate messages, including one saying that she was "fit as f---."

Bowen during his arrest said that he assumed the girls he approached were over 16 years old.

However, he admitted the two incitement charges that occurred between July and October 2015, reported the Daily Mail.

According to the Daily Post, defending barrister, Dafydd Roberts, urged the judge, Rhys Rowland, not to jail Bowen, who has learning difficulties.

According to the Sun, Judge Rowland chose not to jail him and described Bowen as "small in stature" and "emotionally inadequate."

He argued that Bowen would face a very hard time in the prison because of his small build. The judge handed Bowen a 48-week prison sentence, suspended for two years.

According to the Daily Post, Judge Rowland told the court that Bowen "was trying to live in a world of fantasy." A further charge of harassment was also dropped. Though he had no previous convictions, according to Judge Rowland, Bowen "had done a very, very wrong thing."

Bowen has been given a rehabilitation order, which includes a three-month curfew between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. He has also been given a 10-year sexual harm prevention order and placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register.

In another incident in 2011, a dwarf was spared from being jailed for dealing crack cocaine. Pele Watson, who is 3 feet 9 inches tall, was caught by an undercover officer who bought drugs from him outside an east London bookmakers.

Jeremy Rendle, defending Watson, said that his client was an addict but had not made any money from the offence. He said that Watson suffered from a condition called achondroplasia, a common cause for dwarfism, and if he was given an immediate custodial sentence, he would lose his home that was being renovated to meet his physical needs, reported the Daily Mail.
