Sex offender caught sleeping in the same house as two young boys

A sex offender who slept in the same house as two boys has been jailed for 15 months.

A court was told an order required White to notify social services if he was staying or remaining in the same house as a child after he was convicted of sexual assault.

Jake White admitted two charges of breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order which was imposed at Hull Crown Court in September 2012.

Lincoln Crown Court heard the order was made after White, 24, from Skegness, was convicted of two charges of sexual assault on a girl aged under 13.

Richard Thatcher, prosecuting, said White breached the order on two occasions in June this year.

Mr Thatcher said on June 3 a 13-year-old boy stayed overnight at the same address as White.

Two days later, on June 5, a five-year-old boy also slept at the same property as White.
