Workington pensioner tagged and ordered to sign sex offenders’ register

[A] PENSIONER with no previous convictions must sign the sex offenders’ register after committing his first crime.

Lawrence Robinson, 77, was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court today (THURS). He had previously admitted a charge of sexual activity with a person with a mental disorder impeding choice. The offence took place on 19th August last year.

Robinson’s victim was a teenage girl. She was left “concerned and distressed” by his criminal conduct, which was reported to police after she told her family what had happened.

Robinson was handed a nine-month prison sentence for the offence. This was suspended for two years by Judge Peter Davies, who heard mitigation about the defendant’s positive good character and “extensive” working life.

Robinson, of Pearl Road, Salterbeck, Workington, was also given a three-month electronically monitored night-time curfew, and must complete a rehabilitation requirement.

He has to sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.
