British man, John O’Neill, who was banned from having sex or any sexual activity with any woman unless he notifies the police, has lost appeal he made to have the restriction lifted.
BBC reports that O’Neill was cleared of rape in 2015 but due to remarks he made to a GP and a nurse in 2014, he was given a Sexual Risk Order (SRO).
The SRO included that Mr. O’Neill would notify the police before he participates in any sexual activity. He would also notify the police about any device he owns that he could use in accessing the internet or in calling/texting people.
Mr. O’Neill said that the terms were “frankly unpoliceable” and he had been misunderstood.
However, Judge Adrian Lower said the terms of the order would be modified.
The judge was concerned about the requirement for Mr. O’Neill to tell the police within 24 hours before he engages himself in sex with a new partner.
However, the judge said the evidences presented during the course of the hearing made him worried.
“I found him to be a vain, manipulative and grandstanding individual who seeks to persuade me that black is in fact white,” he said.
Judge Lower also said that Mr. O’Neill showed a “narcissistic streak”.
Mr. O’Neill, an IT consultant said he did not know what he was doing, while he presented himself in court.
He also appealed that the amended order would allow him get a job.
He told BBC that the order had also disallowed him from getting jobs requiring computers or telephones and he was now living in a tent in woodland.
“I’m homeless, I cannot work, I cannot claim benefits, I need to get back into society somehow.” he said.
When Mr. O’Neill was cleared of rape in November, 2015, the judge labelled him a very “dangerous individual”.
The Yorkshire Police applied for the SRO due to comments he made to health workers.
On Friday, August 19, 2016, the court heard details to health professionals which included choking a woman until she was unconscious and thinking of killing her.
It said it would work with the courts to “protect the public from the risk Mr O’Neill poses” the police reported.
The order would be amended at a hearing on September 22, 2016.
