A Falmouth man's sexual harm prevention order has been extended.

Last month the Packet reported that Andrew James Opie, 29, now of East Hill in Camborne, breached an order that was imposed in May.

He had contact with a child between August 1 and September 18 in Camborne and a new three-year sexual harm prevention order was put in place on Friday, September 20.

Last week the case was reopened and the order was extended to five years.

It was reopened under section 142 of the Magistrates' Court Act 1980, which allows the court to reopen cases if an error has been made.

The order imposes a series of prohibitions, including having any contact or communication with any child under the age of 16; residing or sleeping where there is an under-16; using a computer or device capable of accessing internet; creating any profile on any internet site unless it is in his name; disclosing the creation of a profile to police within three days; allowing police to review any profile created on a dating website and must not delete any messages sent or received on those sites.

Opie is also required to register with the police in accordance with the Sexual Offences Act 2003 for three years.

He was also fined £80 and ordered to pay £85 costs and £32 victim surcharge for breaching the order last month.
