Sex Offender banned

The Stipendiary Magistrate in Manchester today made an order under the Sex Offenders legislation, banning a convicted sex offender called Jones, who had been released after a sentence, from making any contact with children, amongst other orders. The Legislation allows a court to make an order against a known sex offender who is a danger to the public and particularly young children. The police had been keeping Jones under surveillance. They had found condoms on him and pornographic material at his residence. He was showing the same behavioural tendencies as when he offended. He has 16 previous convictions for sex offences against him dating back to 1967. This is one of the first examples of the legislation being used. GMP is to be applauded for taking the initiative. It is unusual for the Police to be able to take an offender to court before he has committed a crime.
