Pervert convicted of sexually assaulting child

In 2015, Kieron Oliver – then aged 17 – was convicted of sexually assaulting a child.

Oliver, now 20 of Gateshead, was given a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order for his crimes.

However, he admitted breaching it after failing to tell Northumbria Police he had been evicted. It meant the force had no address in which to monitor him.

A sentencing hearing was told Oliver had previously breached it in 2016.

And he had been jailed for breaching a suspended sentence.

Magistrates handed Oliver, of no fixed address, a two-year community order for breaching his order.

They also imposed an £85 charge on Oliver, who proceedings heard pocketed around £1,000-a-month in benefits.
