Police arrest known offender for breaking his prevention offender
A perverted criminal has been jailed for three years after braching his sexual offences prevention order.
On June 7 police arrested Karl Curtis, 58, from Maidstone, after receiving information that he had breached the terms of the life-time prevention order.
A member of the public raised concerns and an investigation revealed that Curtis had on two occasions allowed a child into his home, breaching his order. Curtis was charged with two counts of breaching his sexual offences prevention order and magistrates remanded him in custody pending a hearing at crown court.
Curtis was later charged with two further breaches of his prevention order, after officers discovered he had engaged a young girl in conversation, and had also allowed another child to enter his home.
Appearing before Maidstone Crown Court on July 12, Curtis was sentenced to three years in prison.
Det Con Victoria Rixon said: “Karl Curtis has a long offending history and is therefore a registered sex offender, and is also subject to a sex offender prevention order. “We rigorously enforce these orders and within 24-hours of receiving information suggesting Curtis had breached his order he was arrested and has remained in prison ever since. He will now serve three years in prison, and when he is released will face the same close monitoring.”
