The electronics engineer had contacted the first girl through the internet when she was 11, and then "groomed her" for two years, buying her presents and taking her to the cinema.
'Dark cloud' John Farmer, prosecuting, told the court: "This case concerns a mature man who is a dangerous paedophile who initially made contact with a vulnerable girl through the internet chat rooms.
Detectives believe Wheeler deliberately exploited the current law on sentencing by waiting until the girls were 13 before having sex with them so he could avoid being jailed for life if caught.Karim Khalil QC said, in mitigation, that Wheeler had believed the first girl to be 16 when he first made contact with her.Mr Khalil said the girls had made a number of allegations, of which Wheeler had not been convicted and which he denied."He was prepared to play the long game, gain her trust and then abuse her."He gave the girl gifts and more cruelly, he spotted that she presented a loveless character and he exploited that to make her emotionally dependent upon him.
