A convicted sex offender is facing a return to prison after admitting breaching his court order.

Carl Potter, of Raleigh Street, the Arboretum, was jailed for 12 months last year for sexual communications with a child, and four months consecutive for a breach of a suspended sentence for an offence of stalking in 2019.

The 33-year-old was placed on the Sex offenders’ Register for ten years and has an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order. He was released from prison on April 1.

Police arrested him on Wednesday 26 May on suspicion of breaching his court order.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday 28 May and was remanded in custody.  He will next appear at the court for sentencing on 18 June.

Detective Constable Stephen Thompson-Kirby, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “As our work in this case demonstrates, the safeguarding of children and young people is a priority for Nottinghamshire Police and we will be relentless in our pursuit of those individuals who pose a threat.

“The sexual harm prevention order applied to Potter includes strict prohibitions and restrictions on his activities in order to protect the public.

“These orders do have teeth and breaches will not be tolerated. We will continue to work tirelessly to keep our communities safe and bring offenders to justice.”
