Convicted sex predator jailed after breaching SOPO
A convicted paedophile has been jailed for a third time after breaching his sexual offences prevention order
Ian Paul Gunn, of Humberston appeared at Lincoln Crown Court where he was convicted of:
Two counts of breaching sexual harm prevention order
Failure to comply with notification requirements
The court was told that Gunn’s latest offences involved breaching his sexual offences prevention order on two occasions. The order was put in place to prevent him from re-offending.
In 2013, Gunn was sentenced to three years and nine months for meeting and grooming a child and sexual activity with a child. The child was a 14 year old schoolgirl
In 2014, the pervert was jailed for 14 months after he admitted two offences of failing to notify his details as a sex offender and five offences of breaching a sexual harm prevention order
In this latest case, the judge handed Gunn 28 months imprisonment of which 18 months would be custodial and the remaining year on licence
Convicted sex offender continued to contact children
A convicted sex offender has been jailed after he showed “persistent, contemptuous disregard” for restrictions designed to protect children.
Ian Gunn, 38, of Eastfield, Humberston, admitted two offences of failing to notify his details as a sex offender and five offences of breaching a sexual harm prevention order between July 15 and September 8.
Bashir Ahmed, prosecuting, told Grimsby Crown Court that Gunn was jailed for three years and nine months in February 2013 for meeting and grooming a child and sexual activity with a child.
He had been recalled to prison until July next year after breaching his licence by having contact with children in defiance of restrictions placed on him.
He also failed to tell police where he was living.
Judge David Tremberg said the restrictions were a “crucial firewall to protect vulnerable children” but Gunn had shown a “persistent, contemptuous disregard” for them.
It was a “flagrant breach” of the restrictions and a “deliberate choice to ignore them on a wholesale basis”.
Gunn was jailed for 14 months.
