A registered sex offender who breached his notification requirements has been jailed. 

Harry Agate, 28, was placed on the Sex Offenders Register in 2017. 

This means he is required to notify police within three days of any changes to his circumstances, including address, alias name, bank account, and passport. 

On May 20, 2022, specialist officers who manage violent and sexual offenders visited Agate at his registered Peterborough address.  

But they were told he had moved out some time ago following an argument with his housemate. 

Agate, of no fixed abode, was later arrested by police and pleaded guilty to failing to comply with his requirements.  

He was sentenced to one year and four months in prison at Cambridge Crown Court on Wednesday (September 6). 

Det Con Faye Patterson said: “Our specialist officers – also known as MOSOVO officers – are trained in the response to and management of sexual or violent offenders and are dedicated to ensuring offenders stick to their requirements. 

“I hope this case shows our dedication to bringing those who breach their orders before the courts.”
