A 33-year-old man was sentenced yesterday after pleading guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to two counts of breaching a sexual harm prevention order. He was given 12 months for the first breach and 4 months for a second breach which will be served concurrently. His Sexual Harm Prevention Order will also remain in place.

In 2015, Damien Thompson, formally of Caunton Avenue, Nottingham was handed a 10-year sexual harm prevention order that banned him from having contact with anyone under the age of 16, as well as residing in any premises where there is also a child under the age of 16.

In relation to the first breach, acting on information that children were at a property that Thompson has connections to, officers attended an address in St Ann’s on 5 August 2017. He was then interviewed and admitted breaching his Sexual Harm Prevention Order by having contact with children under the age of 16. 

PC Helen Lock said: “The way Thompson completely disregarded his sexual harm prevention order, proves how little remorse he has for his previous actions or understanding of how inappropriate they were.

“Thompson is a danger to children; this is not the first time that he has breached his Sexual Harm Prevention Order. I am pleased with the outcome and I am glad that he is off the streets and back in prison, where he belongs.”

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
