Inform cops 24 hours before having sex, UK court tells Briton
A Briton has been cleared in court of raping a woman, but has been slapped with an order that stipulates he should give the police 24 hours’ notice before he has sex in future.
The unique case involving the Yorkshire-based man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, hit the headlines on Saturday. The man, in his forties, was acquitted in 2015 at a retrial after claiming the alleged victim had consented.
But the interim sexual risk order that lays down certain conditions, initially imposed in December, has been extended for four months by magistrates in York. It requires the man disclose any planned sexual activity to the police or face up to five years in prison.
Reports said the order -- drawn up by magistrates in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, and extended in York -- reads: “You must disclose the details of any female including her name, address and date of birth. You must do this at least 24 hours prior to any sexual activity taking place.”
It also contains restrictions on the man using the internet and mobile phone devices and requires him to inform officers of any change of address, BBC reported.
A further court hearing in May will decide whether the interim order should be made into a full order, which has a minimum duration of two years and can last indefinitely.
Sexual risk orders were introduced in England and Wales in March last year and can be applied to any individual who the police believe poses a risk of sexual harm, even if they have never been convicted of a crime.
