PAEDOPHILE FINED AFTER BREACHING SEX OFFENDER REGISTER REQUIREMENTS FOR A SECOND TIME

Paedophile HGV driver Raymond Johnson, who was caught with a haul of indecent images, has been fined £461 after pleading guilty to his second breach of the notification requirements of the Sex Offenders Register.

73-year-old Johnson, now of High Street in Sandown, appeared before the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court on Friday accused of failing to comply with the requirements of the register, which he was placed on for 10 years in 2021.

The court heard that Johnson failed to provide details of a Barclays bank card to the Police within 3 days of receiving it.

Liz Miller, prosecuting, explained that it was back in May that Johnson attended Newport Police Station for his yearly reporting requirement and handed over details as requested. Officers noticed that a bank card in his name had become active 3 months prior, but had not already been registered with the Police.

Details of a previous breach, for failing to supply address details, were given with the outcome recorded as a £30 fine.

Defending, Henry Farley said that his client had to move from his previous address in Wootton due to bullying and that despite being 73 years of age, Johnson was still a HGV driver with his wife.  Mr Farley explained that Johnson had made efforts to register things such as his new vehicle and had registered bank accounts with Nationwide and Barclays previously.

Johnson was given a 21-month prison sentence, suspended for 2 years, in May 2021 for making indecent images of children and possessing extreme pornographic images of children. A Police investigation uncovered hundreds of images of children collected over a 4 year period. The 73-year-old was previously been jailed – twice – in the early 1990s for indecent assault.

Magistrates fined Raymond Johnson £461 and ordered him to pay £85 costs with a £46 surcharge – a total of £592.

Disgusting animal – this guy has been jailed twice in the early 1990’s for indecent assault and he we are about 30 years later and he is convicted of having indecent images of kids and still trying to hide things from the police.

this guy has clearly been at this for most of his life and I bet there are far more disgusting crimes he has committed that haven’t seen the light of day yet.

dirty perv needs hounding out of everywhere he goes and into a jail cell, then a coffin.

Age only improves wine not souls.

As with some disabled people or some children, it is human nature to assume they and all elderly are decent humans

Hope the once young pervert now morphed into a dirty old man gets more grief than it has given in its all too long life span

The true fact is that pedophiles get a fine, a prison sentence etc but as a victim of a pedophile I can assure you I have received a life sentence of ptsd and disgusting memories that are hard to rid ! The judicial system in my opinion are lame here in the UK and our government should take advise from the USA or even better the judicial system from the Middle East, this would be a deterrent.

He’s not going to change is he ? I am glad you put his name, age & location, as we can all steer clear of him as it’s only a matter of time before he acts on his vile impulses.

I thought the idea of a suspended sentence was for the convicted to have a chance to correct there ways , but if during that time they mess up , they go straight to jail.
Come on , twice ??????
Seems to be his age keeping him out of prison , no though for the victims , there age didn’t matter .
