A sex offender who failed to comply with a court order by staying at an address in where children were living – has been jailed for more than a year.
Christopher Wallis, 23, did not provide his passport and driving licence to police, which was part of his requirements to comply with the Sex Offenders Register.
Officers visited Wallis’s home in Peterborough Road, Eye, on several occasions but could not find him and he was listed as wanted.
On November 23, Wallis was riding his motorbike in Orton Avenue, Woodston, Peterborough, when he was stopped by officers and arrested.
Further investigation revealed he had been staying at an address in Orton Goldhay where children were also living.
