Man, 33, sentenced for breaching sexual harm prevention order
Main article content
A convicted rapist has been sentenced to two years and six months in prison after he approached a woman in Sixfields, Northampton.
In 2017, Lucian Major, 33, previously of Northampton, was convicted of sexual activity with a child under 16.
However, despite very strict conditions, he approached her at a fair in Sixfields in July 2021 and tried to talk to her.
The woman took a photo of him and immediately called police. Major was subsequently arrested within 24 hours of the offence taking place.
However, instead of admitting what he had done, he tried to deny the man in the photo was him, despite wearing the same distinctive trainers in custody as in the photo.
A bank card was also found in his possession that he had not told police about and he was further arrested for breaching his notification requirements.
After a three-day trial at Northampton Crown Court last week (January 12), Major was convicted of both offences and sentenced to two years and six months in prison.
Lead Investigator, PC James Brookes, said: “Sexual harm prevention orders are put in place for a reason and not only did Major breach his, he continued to try and deny it, even going so far as to refuse to accept the man in the photograph was him.
“This woman has gone through enough in her life without having to ever see or speak to Major again so I am pleased that he has been sent to prison for this offence. I would like to thank her for bravery in standing in court and giving evidence.
“Northamptonshire Police take sexual offences extremely seriously and I hope this case shows that we will always act quickly and robustly when offenders breach their very strict conditions.”
