Sex offender didn’t register move

By Staff Reporter

A CONVICTED sex offender appeared before Carlisle magistrates yesterday after failing to notify police that he had moved house.

Ian Caleb Brough, 36, of Scotby Gardens, Botcherby, Carlisle, has been listed on the Sex Offenders’ Register since 2001 when he was convicted of downloading pornographic images of children onto his computer.

He admitted failing to tell the police of his change of address, from Moat Street, Brampton, to Scotby Gardens, within the allowed 14 days. In mitigation, solicitor John Smith said Brough was aware of his obligations and had previously always notified the authorities of any changes in address.

At the time of his conviction, Brough lived in Ireby, near Wigton, and before that lived in Cockermouth.

Mr Smith said the lapse had occurred because Brough had been experiencing some problems in his relationship with his partner and had decided to move out as a temporary measure.

He was unsure how long he would be at the address in Scotby Gardens and was still visiting Brampton regularly, so did not register the change as he should have done.

Mr Smith added: “Mr Brough certainly wasn’t trying to avoid detection or anything like that. He assures me it won’t happen again. he’s going to tread very carefully in future.”

Magistrates gave Brough a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay £43 court costs.
