Man has to call police every time he wants to have sex

A court has ruled a man will have to inform the police whenever he wants to engage in sexual activity with another person. 

Wirral Magistrates’ Court heard on April 4 how the man had been investigated in connection with a number of sexual assault cases against women in Cheshire and Merseyside.

Cheshire Police never charged him, but a judge said earlier this month they were ‘satisfied on balance of probability’ he had engaged in at least one act of a sexual nature.

The court subsequently imposed a Sexual Risk Order on the man. 

This requires him not to engage in sexual contact of any kind with another person unless he has first told the police, providing them with the name, date of birth and address of the person he wants to have sex with. 

Detective Constable Chris O’Connor, who was involved in the investigation into the man’s behaviour, said: ‘We are committed to doing all that we can to protect anyone at risk of sexual assault and, as this case demonstrates, we will use all of the tools available to us in conjunction with our neighbouring forces to help achieve our goal.

‘The decision to apply for the order was not taken lightly.

‘However, we carefully considered our options and obligation to protect the public and we are satisfied that this order is the right course of action to protect women in Cheshire and Merseyside.’

Chief superintendent Gareth Lee, head of public protection at Cheshire Constabulary, added: ‘Violence against women and girls is a priority for the force and our officers are committed to doing all they can to ensure that everyone feels safe on the streets of Cheshire.

‘The outcome of this case is testament to the dedication and hard work of all those involved both in Cheshire and Merseyside in securing the order at Court and safeguarding women who are potentially at risk.

‘The officers involved have worked extremely hard alongside colleagues in the force’s Public Protection Directorate and solicitors from the Merseyside Police’s legal team to ensure a positive outcome.

‘Not only does the order restrict the activities of this man, it provides peace of mind to women by ensuring that safeguarding measures are in place if needed.’
