A Blackpool man who committed numerous breaches of a sexual harm prevention order has been jailed.
Kyle Sweet, 20, of Knowsley Avenue, was sentenced to eight years in prison at Preston Crown Court on October 1.
Sweet was handed a five-year sexual harm prevention order (SHPO) in August 2019 for previous offending. The order prohibited contacted with a female under the age of 16 and included strict guidelines around internet and mobile phone use.
In October 2019 officers from Blackpool Police’s Managing Sexual Offenders and Violent Offenders unit (MOSOVO) attended his address on an unannounced visit.

He was arrested and later released under investigation.
In January this year he was re-arrested for contacting a 13-year-old girl, again in breach of his SHPO.
Sweet was later charged with 13 offences including:
• Two offences of sexual communication with a child.
• Ten offences of breaching a sexual harm prevention order.
• One offence of stalking.
He appeared at court in October and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.
