A 31-year-old registered sex offender has been sent back to prison after breaching a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).
Freddie Millar, who the court was told also identifies as Xenia Jade Millar, previously of Northampton, was issued with the SHPO in 2017 after being convicted of raping a woman.
As a registered sex offender, Millar was required to abide by very strict conditions after leaving prison in September last year or face going back to jail.
These conditions included notifying police of any new relationship, any new social media accounts created, or the purchase of any devices capable of accessing the internet.
However, on December 8, 2023, when police officers from Northamptonshire Police’s MOSOVO Team spontaneously visited Millar, they found a laptop and a woman inside the address who claimed to be in a relationship with Millar. Neither the laptop nor the relationship had been disclosed to police.
Then on January 22, Millar was once again visited by the MOSOVO Team who discovered a mobile phone with multiple social media accounts that hadn’t been disclosed. They also found conversations which suggested Millar had once again formed friendships/relationships that police weren’t aware of.
As a result, Millar was subsequently charged with one count of breaching a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and one count of Breaching Notification Requirements.
After pleading guilty to both offences at an earlier hearing at Northampton Crown Court in December 2023, Millar returned to the same court last week (February 5) and was sentenced to one year and four months in prison.
Lead Investigator - Detective Constable Will Corlett from the MOSOVO Team said: “Registered sex offenders are very closely managed by our team and I want to be clear that any breaches are dealt with robustly. We do not give second chances or ‘the benefit of the doubt’ - anyone who breaches their order is charged and brought before the courts with a view to sending them to prison.
“I’m pleased to see Millar jailed as it means the streets of Northampton are that little bit safer.
“I hope this case reassures the public with regards to how seriously we take offences such as this and shows the relentless determination of Northamptonshire Police to put as many people like Millar behind bars.”
