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.
Given the woeful state of British justice Its no real surprise he thought he could get away with it. The law here is only really ever applied to the customerily law abiding or those that will pay up and cause it few problems.
A two year prison sentence, which means he will be out in 12 months, after having his sentence cut in half for 'good behaviour' as soon as the prison van drives through the prison gates, and that is not including any time spent in custody on remand, which is taken off his sentence. With the propensity of smuggled mobile phones being found inside cells, what is the likelihood he will be cured when he comes out in a year?

For the vast majority of the underclass, it's like weather. Always present, can't be avoided but don't let it prevent you doing what you want to do...
