Pervert breached conditions of a Sex offender’s Registration Order and Sexual Harm Prevention Order

A convicted paedophile was arrested after failing to tell police he had stayed at an address in Blackpool where there was a five-year-old girl

Lee Adshead broke conditions of a Sex Offenders Registration Order and a Sexual Harm Prevention Order he had been put on after being convicted of grooming.

Adshead, 39, of Richmond Grove, Longsight, Manchester, pleaded guilty to five offences of breaching the orders imposed on him.

The offences took place between February 16 and September 17 last year. Police inquiries revealed Adshead had stayed at an address in Blackpool, where a child under 18 lived, for at least 12 hours without notifying the police.

Adshead had also failed to tell police about an address he had stayed at for seven days or longer.

In addition, he had got a device capable of accessing the Internet and twice failed to make his mobile phone available immediately on the request of a police officer for inspection.

Prosecutor, Pam Smith, asked for the case to be sentenced at crown court. Adshead was bailed to appear for sentence on March 10 at Preston Crown Court.

He must live at his given address and keep a tagged curfew from 9pm to 7am and not enter Blackpool except for pre-arranged appointments with his solicitor.
