Convicted sex offender Michael Horn is back behind bars after he contacted teenage girls on the internet and persuaded them to send him naked pictures of themselves.
The 25-year-old pervert was made the subject of a 10-year sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) in 2012 for sexually assaulting a schoolgirl.
But he breached the order for the 12th and 13th time by contacting 14-year-old girls online and by having contact with another registered sex offender.
The offences happened just weeks after he was handed a three-year community order for chatting with a 15-year-old schoolgirl online.
Now Horn has been jailed for 16 months at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court .
Prosecutor Paul Spratt said: “He accepts he has breached two aspects of the order. He has communicated with a known registered sex offender. And he has used his computer to access internet sites where young girls are present and he has persuaded them to send partial or fully naked images of themselves to him.
“The defendant was with a registered sex offender on two occasions when they both visited the Vodafone store in Newcastle . The defendant had bought a dongle to enable his computer to access the internet and visited the store on two occasions to top it up.
“He admits he has sought and received images of a sexual nature of 14-year-old girls.”
Horn, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to two charges of breaching a SOPO.
Jailing Horn, Judge David Fletcher said: “You were given a three-year community order by me on October 5. It is a real pity these matters reflect breaches of your order very quickly after that community order was imposed by me.
“The escalating number of breaches, and the frequency they are occurring, is causing me a great deal of concern. There is a perceived and a real danger by this ongoing behaviour by you.
“If these sorts of breaches continue to happen, all that will happen to you is the sentences will get longer and longer.”
The judge revoked the community order and Horn was placed on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.
