Registered Peterborough sex offender jailed for twice breaching prevention order


A registered sex offender who twice breached a prevention order has been jailed for two years.

Barrie Day, 60, was visited at his home in Howland, Orton Goldhay, by officers in July 2015 and May this year. On both occasions officers discovered and seized devices that were in breach his Sexual Offences Prevention Order and contained indecent images of children.

Day was given the Sexual Offences Prevention Order following a conviction in 2012.

He pleaded guilty to breaching the order. Today (June 13) at Peterborough Crown Court he was sentenced to two years in prison. He will serve one year in custody before being released on licence.

Detective Constable Sharon Popple said: “Day deliberately and repeatedly breached his Sexual Offences Prevention Order. I hope the sentence acts as a warning to other people who are subject to this type of order that breaches will not be tolerated.”
