Rothwell perv bans using drive-thru alone
A perv in Rothwell has been banned from using the drive-thru himself and must notify the police of any vehicle he gets behind the wheel of.
Martin Roberts has admitted to indecent exposure after flashing from his car in an incident last year.
The 40-year-old, from Crispin Street, was later given a community order by magistrates in Northampton.
And now magistrates have granted a six-year sexual abuse prevention order against him, which means he will have to comply with strict conditions.
Violation of the order is a separate crime that can be punished by up to five years in prison.
Under the order, he is prohibited from driving a vehicle unless the model, color and registration number are notified to the police within 24 hours.
He is also prohibited – if alone in a vehicle – from engaging or attempting to engage an unknown woman on the street or entering a drive-thru.
A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman said: “The protection of people is of the utmost importance to Northamptonshire Police and therefore we take the management of sex offenders very seriously.
“Sexual harm prevention orders are put in place to protect the public and require an offender to follow strict rules.
“Part of the role of the MOSOVO (Management of Sexual or Violent Offenders) team is to ensure that registered sex offenders comply with these orders and, when they do not, to bring them to justice.
“We take an absolute zero tolerance approach to breaches and there are no second chances or leeway if a breach is identified.”
