UK man banned from hav­ing sex

CityPress - - News -

A man from York in the UK has been banned from hav­ing any form of sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with a woman un­less he tells po­lice of his plans 24 hours in ad­vance.

The York Mag­is­trates’ Court this week or­dered that the man in­form the po­lice of his plans to start a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship or have one-off sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with any woman.

He has also been or­dered to con­trol his use of the in­ter­net, phone or any de­vice that could al­low him to ac­cess the in­ter­net, and his use of a cell­phone to call or text peo­ple.

No rea­sons for the or­der have been pub­lished, but the re­stric­tions are part of an in­terim sex­ual risk or­der that will cease on May 19, when the court will de­cide whether to make a full or­der and, if so, for how long.

Un­der the in­terim or­der, if the man, who can­not be named for le­gal rea­sons, plans to start a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship of any kind with a woman or to have a one-night stand with a woman, he has to con­tact North York­shire Po­lice.

If he moves to an area out­side York’s ju­ris­dic­tion, he must tell the lo­cal po­lice.

Ac­cord­ing to the UK’s Tele­graph, full sex­ual risk or­ders last for a min­i­mum of two years and con­tra­ven­tion of such an or­der can lead to a prison sen­tence of up to five years.

The dras­tic or­ders are used when some­one has not been con­victed of a sex­ual of­fence be­fore.
