Cleckheaton sex offender used a library computer to search for children online
A sex offender who used a library computer to make Internet searches on children was in breach of a court order.
Tony Spencer, of Westgate in Cleckheaton, was before Kirklees Magistrates’ Court today.
The court heard that the 37-year-old was subject to a Sexual Offences Prevention Order by a crown court judge in May 2011.
This banned him from accessing online sites relating to children aged under 16.
But he ignored the order while at a library in the town on September 23.
A librarian discovered that Spencer had carried out searches online using the word ‘children’.
District Judge Michael Fanning sentenced him to a 12-month community order with activities specified by probation staff.
