Sex offender back in jail after probation breach
A man who was jailed for five years for sexually assaulting a woman in 2009 has been sent back to prison after breaching his probation order.
Andre Castle was sentenced to a further six months behind bars after he fell off the probation service’s radar 30 months into the 36-month order.
The 30-year-old was released from the initial five-year sentence in 2012 and fell behind with the conditions of his probation order before “going Awol”.
The authorities eventually caught up with him last month, when he admitted stealing a purse from a primary school teacher and was jailed for a month.
At Supreme Court on Monday, Castle apologised for breaching the order and asked for a chance to prove himself.
But Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves said the defendant continued to be a “real risk to the ladies in the community” while imposing an immediate six-month sentence.
