Sex offender from Hereford jailed after leaving UK
"A SEX offender who left Britain to live abroad after being released early from jail has been given an 18-month prison sentence.
DW, aged 50, Newton Farm, Hereford, pleaded guilty to breaching the requirements of the sex offenders’ register.
He failed to notify police of a change of address and failed to tell them of his intention to leave the UK for the Phillipines, Worcester Crown Court heard.
In 2004 he was convicted of sexual offences on a girl and making indecent images of a child. He was sentenced to 15 months in jail and his prison licence was extended to three years.
But he then went to live in the Phillipines with his wife until the authorities in that country found out and extradited him back to the UK."
