Film traps pervert with teenagers


A SEX offender banned from ever speaking to youngsters again was secretly filmed leaving his house with two teenage girls.

Stanley Robert Carberry, from Stockport, (pictured above) was placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life and banned from ever speaking to anyone aged under 16 last April. Carberry, also known as Robert Riley, was placed on the Register by a Multi Agency Protection Panel following concerns about the risk he posed to children.

He was also banned from approaching, speaking, or communicating in any way, either directly or indirectly, with any child or young person under the age of 16.

But less than a year later, police who were monitoring him caught him on camera with two teenage girls.

Shocking police video captured the 66-year-old leaving his Stockport home in the company of two girls, both under the age of 16.

Det Insp Harry Harrison of GMPs violent and sex offenders registration unit said: “Greater Manchester police are committed to working with our partner agencies to ensure the public are protected and those on the Sex Offenders Register are appropriately monitored.

“This proactive approach includes the use of surveillance when necessary and as a result of this monitoring we obtained the evidence that Carberry was breaching his order by associating with young people.

“I hope this sends a clear message to registered sex offenders and reassures the public that we have the resources to detect breaches and put offenders before the courts.” Carberry pleaded guilty to two counts of breaching his Sex Offender Order and failing to tell police he had changed his address at Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester.

He was sentenced to a 12 month community rehabilitation order . Police have moved him out of Stockport and he must now live where told to by the probation service.
