A man has just been banned from having sex, unless he lets local police know at least one day in advance.
North Yorkshire Police have looked to impose a ‘sexual risk order’ for a man who has not yet been convicted of a sexual offence, but who is thought to be unsafe for the public, according to the York Press.
The man from York has to contact the police in advance to tell them of any woman he plans to have a relationship or one-night stand with.
These sexual risk orders – which are part of the 2003 Sexual Offence Act – can be made by a court on an individual ‘who has done an act of a sexual nature and who, as a result, poses a risk of harm to the public in the UK or children or vulnerable adults abroad.’
However, it adds that ‘the individual does not need to have committed a relevant (or any offence)’ for the order to be imposed.
This will last for a minimum of two years and if he breaches it, it could lead to a jail sentence of up to five years.
As well as having to notify police when he plans to have sex, he’s also under specific controls, which means he must tell police about every phone he could use to text, call or access the web with.
