Pervert Alan Stokes – a registered sex offender – is back in prison for breaching a court order designed to prevent him making contact with children on the internet. The Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) was imposed at Peterborough Crown Court some years ago, but Stokes has again breached it.

A routine police visit found Stokes had been communicating with a girl and had also deleted his internet history.

Stokes, 42, was visited by police officers at his home in Willonholt, Ravensthorpe, Peterborough, on 6 September last year.
It was meant to be a routine visit, but they checked his mobile phone after he told them he had been speaking to a female on WhatsApp.

The phone was seized, and the female discovered to be a child.

Stokes had sent messages to the girl, who had confirmed she was a child, between June and August last year.

He also tried to communicate with her through a webcam.

When Stokes was arrested on 30 October, he had hidden a mobile phone under a pillow and another under his mattress.

Both phones were seized, and it was found he had deleted 2324 items from one phone’s internet history.

Communicating with a girl under 18 and deleting internet history put Stokes in breach of two conditions of his SHPO which was imposed at Peterborough Crown Court in March 2015 for previous breaches of orders.

Yesterday (17 January), at the same court, Stokes was jailed for 22 months, having pleaded guilty to attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child and two breaches of his SHPO.

DC Claire Cummings, from the force’s management of sexual offenders team, said: “Stokes is a danger to children, and we will always enforce SHPOs and make sure sex offenders are abiding by their conditions.

“This sentence sends out a clear message that we will look to protect children and the vulnerable from harm.”
