A predator who had already been convicted for child sex offences has returned to jail after offending again.
Paul Taylor, 24, of Maynards Lane, Little Sampford, was jailed at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday, July 12, for breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) and engaging in sexual activity with a child.
Taylor, who committed the offences between July and August of last year, was the subject of a SOPO after previously being convicted for engaging in sexual activity with a child.
DC Mark Harrington, investigating officer, said that the 24-year-old ignored the terms and conditions imposed on him by the order.
He said: “Taylor is a prolific offender and a predatory individual when it comes to young teenage girls.
“The only logical sentence was a significant term in prison. Hopefully while in prison he will have every opportunity to engage in a programme of rehabilitation.”
Taylor was given one year for breaching his order, and a further three years for two counts of sexual activity with a child.
He has also been given a lifetime SOPO with enhanced conditions.
