Paedophile sent messages to girl after being released from prison on licence

A sex offender who contacted a teenage girl on social media while out of prison on licence has been jailed.

Warrington man David Fowler was jailed for nine years in 2015 after pleading guilty to four counts of inciting a 15 year old girl to engage in sexual intercourse.

On Tuesday Fowler , 30, of no fixed abode, appeared at Chester Crown court when he was jailed for 22 months for breaching the terms of a sexual offence prevention order.

The 22 month sentence will sit alongside the rest of Fowler’s prison sentence from 2015.

Chester Crown court heard that Fowler had contacted a 15-year-old girl on social media, which breached the terms of the sexual offence prevention order handed down to him in 2015.

In 2015 Warrington Crown court heard how Fowler had set up a Facebook account in the name ‘Chris Johnson’ which he used to send explicit messages to a teenage girl.

The court heard that Fowler had used social media to groom teenager girls. Judge Nicholas Woodward, who jailed the Warrington man for nine years, described him as a “predator.”
