Ian West, for Johnson, said despite the breach, the defendant had otherwise complied with the order made in May, attending all but one of 25 probation appointments.Hmm, so, what was the breach? Oh, just a little matter of possessing equipment capable of accessing the Internet and not telling police about it.
Police visited him at his home and despite his claim that he had no internet accessing device, an X-Box was found in a bedroom.
He was taken to a police station made no comment when questioned, but his ex-partner told officers he had been contacting her by social media via a phone for months.
Recorder Simon Kealey QC told Johnson it was a “clear breach” of the order imposed only months earlier. He activated 18-moths (sic) of the suspended sentence and added six months for breaching the SHPO, making a total two-year prison sentence.
Johnson was reminded he will remain subject to the ten-year SHPO and sex offender registration.
The British Justice system doesn't like scofflaws.
