A Portslade sex offender has been returned to prison after breaching his licence and going awol from his bail hostel.
Kasey Knowles, 22, originally from Flint Close, Portslade, was arrested in Brighton last night and sent back to jail.
Knowles was given a ten-month suspended prison sentence in August last year after pleading guilty to grooming a teenage girl online and then having sex with her.
He was also given a two-year supervision order, 240 hours unpaid work, 10 years on the Sex Offenders Register and 10-year SHPO after admitting six counts of sexual activity.
He was later given a 15-month sentence for breaching the SHPO for contacting witnesses, but released on licence on 11 March.
After he pleaded guilty last month to assaulting a man in Graham Close, Portslade, he was fined £40, ordered to pay his victim £30 and costs of £85 – and warned he would be returned to prison.
