Paedophile Illegally Set Up Facebook Account Leicester Magistrates Court Told

Paedophile Illegally Set Up Facebook Account Leicester Magistrates Court Told
Somehow this pedophile didn't understand when he was told that part of his prevention order was to not have a social networking site. He will be sentenced in May for breaching his order. I know there are those that will say, "SO WHAT IS HIS CRIME? No big deal he only opened a Facebook account so he could communicate with his girlfriend." While having a Facebook account might not seem like a big deal, it is. Pedophiliac predators GROOM children on social networking sites. Unless someone with a history of acting on their attraction to children (aka pedophilia sexual abuser) gets help for their abnormal attraction. Their risk to re-offend is high. Someone with 17 previous convictions doesn't get that harming children isn't okay. He is obviously a repeat offender. So having a social networking site is dangerous for any children he would have contact with on Facebook or any other social network account. Rosie

Leicester Mercury FollowA convicted paedophile has been back in court after illegally setting up an account on Facebook.

Sean Ellis pleaded guilty to breaching the terms of a sexual offences prevention order when he appeared at Leicester Magistrates' Court this week.

THE COURT HEARD THAT ELLIS (26), OF INGLE DRIVE, ASHBY, HAD 17 PREVIOUS CONVICTIONS FOR A TOTAL OF 42 OFFENCES DATING BACK TO 2007 WHEN HE WAS CONVICTED AT DERBY CROWN COURT AND IMPRISONED FOR HAVING SEX WITH A GIRL UNDER THE AGE OF 16. In 2011, he was made the subject of a sexual offences prevention order after being convicted at Leicester Crown Court for making indecent photographs of children.

Under its terms, he was banned from registering with social networking sites such as Facebook.

Ellis was also sentenced to six months in prison at Portsmouth Crown Court last year, after opening a Facebook account under an assumed name.

Police in Hampshire, who continued to monitor his internet activity when he returned to Leicestershire earlier this year, discovered he had set up a new Facebook account in his own name, which he used from February 28 to March 13.

Sukhjit Singh, prosecuting, said: "This is his second breach of the order. He was told by officers that in no circumstances should he use Facebook, but he seems to have disregarded this warning."

In mitigation, Roger Day said Ellis was confused about the exact terms of the order.

He said: "This offence was entirely different to the previous breach. He signed up using his own name and passwords known to police so he could keep in touch with his girlfriend in Portsmouth and research his family tree."

Magistrate Lorraine Mason said the court's powers were insufficient to punish Ellis, who will be sentenced for the offence at Leicester Crown Court on May 15.
