Paul Hadfield, 50, breach of sex offender’s registration

A convicted paedophile failed to tell police his address when he worked as a painter and decorator at a pub. Paul Hadfield had been convicted in 2014 of having sexual activity with a girl under 16 and put on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years.

Hadfield, 50, who said he divided his time between two addresses in Station Road, South Shore, Blackpool, and Braemar Walk, Bispham, pleaded guilty to breaching a condition of his sex offender’s registration.

He was sentenced to a four week curfew from 8pm to 6am and ordered to pay £85 costs with £85 victims’ surcharge.

Prosecutor Pam Smith said Hadfield failed to tell police, as he was legally required to do, of an address he had stayed at for more than seven days in Middlesbrough between May 6 and 17.

He had a previous conviction for breaching a condition of his sex offender’s registration by failing to notify his address to police.

Pervert breached Sexual Offences Prevention Order

A convicted paedophile failed to tell police he had been living at a woman’s home in Blackpool.

Paul Hadfield had previously been convicted of sexual activity with a child after a girl woke up and found him on top of her during a sleepover.

Hadfield, 49, of Station Road, South Shore, pleaded guilty to breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) by staying at an address for more than seven days in a 12 month period between June 1 and 28, which was different from the one he had registered with the police.

He was sentenced to a 12 months community order with up to 10 days rehabilitation to be supervised by the probation service and fined £30 with £85 victims’ surcharge.

Prosecutor, Sarah Perkins, said police were called to the report of a domestic incident at a woman’s home in Blackpool.

Hadfield was there and said he was having a relationship with the woman.

Inquiries showed he was on a SOPO and that he had not revealed to police he had lived at the woman’s address for more than seven days.

The prosecutor said Hadfield had been made the subject of the SOPO in 2014 as a result of sexual activity with a child.

He had formed a relationship with a mother-of-three and been found on top of a female friend of the woman’s 13-year-old daughter when she had a sleepover.

The same year he breached the SOPO when he was found to have had two young girls at his flat.
