A SEX offender carried out an assault on a woman, damaged a TV and broke notification requirement rules by living at another address.

Anthony Johns of Pershore Road, Great Comberton, near Pershore admitted failure to comply with notification requirements imposed on him for a sexual offence, restrictions enforced on registered sex offenders under the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

The 2003 Act requires offenders on the sex offenders’ register to notify their local police of certain personal details and information, including their name, address, date of birth and national insurance number.

The 35-year-old appeared at Worcester Crown Court on Monday where he admitted breaching the requirements 'without reasonable excuse' because he was living at an address other than his registered address for a period in excess of seven days over a 12 month period.

The offence happened between July 12 and November 30 last year.

Details of the original sexual offence were not disclosed in court.

He further admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm and criminal damage to a television on November 29 last year.

He also faces a a further committal for sentence from the magistrates court.

A pre-sentence report was ordered by Judge Jim Tindal ahead of the sentence which is scheduled to take place at Worcester Crown Court on February 3.

The judge told Johns this was so the sentencing judge had more information about him before passing sentence.

Johns will have to be interviewed by a probation officer and was told this would probably take place over videolink as he remains in custody.

The defendant was also told it was in his interests to co-operate with the probation officer in the preparation of that report.

Johns was remanded in custody until that date.
