A 35-year-old registered sex offender has been handed one year and eight months in prison after breaching his conditions.
Daniel Ryan Bailey, 35, previously of Northampton, is subject to a number of requirements including having to notify police should he get new a internet enabled device such as mobile phone or tablet, bank card, phone number or email address.
However, Bailey ignored these rules, using phone numbers, a bank card and email address, all of which he had failed to notified police of.
At the beginning of November 2020, Bailey was visited by the Force’s MOSOVO Team and questioned as to whether he was complying with his notification requirements.
Despite lying to officers and stating that “on his life” he had nothing to show them, he was found to be in possession of a new phone, phone number, bank card and email address. He had also concealed the possession of an Xbox and an iPad from officers.
He was subsequently charged with seven counts of breaching his sexual harm prevention order and one count of failing to comply with his notification requirements.
As a result, he was sentenced to one year and eight months in prison at Northampton Crown Court on December 7, 2021.
Lead Investigator, PC James Brookes from Northamptonshire Police’s MOSOVO Team, said: “Daniel Bailey demonstrated deliberate and deceitful behaviour when he lied to officers about the devices and items he was in possession of.
“He rightly, has very strict notification requirements he is expected to abide by and here, he has shown a complete disregard and lack of respect for them.
“I am pleased therefore that he has been handed a prison sentence as a result and will now spend Christmas Day looking at the four walls of a cell.
“We take an absolute zero-tolerance approach to situations like this and there is no room for manoeuvre or second chances. Our job is to protect the public and we will immediately look to charge a registered sex offender, all of which are monitored very closely, if they breach any of their conditions.”
