A sex pest deemed such a danger he is banned from approaching women is back in prison after an attack in Burton Latimer.

Richard Enderby Hall-Trafford, 24, was jailed for 34 weeks last year after he admitted sexually assaulting two women, flashing at a jogger and performing a sex act in public.

As part of his sentence he was made subject to a sexual harm prevention order, banning him from approaching, touching or attempting to engage with any unknown female for five years unless it is unavoidable.

But on May 23 (Saturday), just months after being released from custody, he breached it to commit another offence.

He was in Spencer Street in Burton Latimer when he sexually assaulted a woman.

Hall-Trafford, of no fixed address but formerly of Corby, was arrested and hauled before magistrates on Wednesday where he admitted sexual assault and breaching the banning order by touching her.

Magistrates told him he would be remanded in custody until he is sentenced on June 18 in Northampton.
