[A] SEX offender who admits three separate breaches of a court order has been told he will learn his fate next month.
Ian Jackson, 31, was originally sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court early last year.
Jackson groomed a 13-year-old “girl” for an intended sexual liaison – only to discover at their meeting he had been caught in a police sting.
For an offence of attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming, he was handed a suspended prison sentence. He was also made subject to the strict terms of a sexual harm prevention order (SHPO).
But he breached that SHPO three times, in August and September last year.
At the crown court today (TUES), Judge Peter Hughes QC heard Jackson, of Main Street, Egremont, had admitted all three breaches.
Jackson had accessed the internet without police monitoring software being fitted to his device. In addition, he had deleted text messages and also created a social media account despite being prohibited from doing so.
Judge Hughes adjourned the case until May 12. Jackson will be sentenced on that date, and was bailed in the meantime.
