Dariusz Jagielo of Soham Road, Ely, failed to notify police that he was travelling outside of the UK last month.

The 56-year-old was convicted of sexual assault in March last year. He was sentenced to a community order and placed on the Sex Offenders Register for five years, requiring him to notify police of any foreign travel outside the UK for any period of time.

He appeared at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court on Saturday (August 3) where he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 24 weeks imprisonment.
