Repeat Carlisle offender back in jail

Carlisle Crown Court

A CARLISLE man has been jailed after flouting a court order he was given for previous criminal conduct.

Michael Graham, 29, was given a four-year prison sentence in 2015 after being caught performing a sex act in the city’s library. As part of that punishment, Graham was also made subject to an order which, among the strict terms, banned him from parks frequented by under-16s.

Yet, following his release from custody in early July this year, Graham admitted – when quizzed about a theft – that he had gone into Carlisle’s Rickerby Park.

That placed him in breach of the previously-imposed order, and he was brought back to Carlisle Crown Court this week.

Graham had also previously received a five-year jail term, in 2010, for child abduction in another city park, the court heard.

Graham was said to have a “variety of personality difficulties”.

Judge James Adkin imposed an immediate 12-month jail term, Graham having admitted breaching the order and a separate theft.

“The risk that you present to children from being in a park is significant,” Judge Adkin told Graham, of Partridge Place, Carlisle. “You have shown yourself to be incredibly sexually disinhibited in the past.”
