A sex offender who was jailed for grooming teenage girls was caught hiding in the bathroom of a Stoke-on-Trent home.

Liam Proudman, 24, was sentenced to three years in a young offenders institution in 2018 for having sexual online chats with the three victims.

As a result, he has to abide conditions of a sexual harm prevention order (SHPO). But Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard police received information that he was staying at an address in Tunstall where a child lives.

Despite the protests of a woman to stop police entering the property, Proudman was found in the bathroom. Now the defendant, of Yarnbrook Grove, Norton, has been jailed for 20 months.

Prosecuting, Graeme Simpson, said: “On Sunday, March 5 of this year at an address in Tunstall, officers arrived in the afternoon after hearing the defendant was living there with a woman and her young son.

“Despite a protest, police officers searched the property and found Proudman trying to hide. He told officers he was only there to collect his items and he was not living there. He then admitted to officers that he was there overnight.”
