A MAN who made sexual communication with a child has been remanded in custody by a judge.

Jason Oldacre had been due to stand trial facing a string of offences committed after his release from prison for other sex offences.

But before a jury could be sworn in at Swindon Crown Court the 46-year-old changed his pleas to admit what he had done.

Oldacre accepted he intentionally contacted the boy, who was under the age of 16, between Tuesday, May 16, and Saturday, May 20.

And by doing so he was in breach of a sexual harm prevention order imposed in November 2015 for abusing a young girl.

He also sent an electronic communication of an indecent nature with intent to cause distress or anxiety on Tuesday, April 25, this year.

And the following day Oldacre, who has a history of inappropriate behaviour, assaulted a woman by beating.

After he entered the guilty pleas Judge Tim Mousley QC adjourned the case to Friday, January 26, and remanded Oldacre in custody.

He ordered that a psychiatric report be prepared on Oldacre, of Culvery Court, as well as a presentence report.

Oldacre was jailed for 100 weeks in November 2015 for repeatedly molesting a seven-year-old girl when he was left alone with her.

After he was arrested police found he had added vile labels to an innocent video he had taken of the youngster, saying what he would like to do to her.

And even then he denied any wrongdoing only admitting it on the morning of a trial after being told he would not get more than two years.

The matter came to light after Oldacre was caught stealing underwear from a washing line.

The youngster's mum told the girl they wouldn't be seeing him anymore and the child replied 'Is that because of the bad things he had been doing to me?'

She then told how on three occasions he had put his hand up her skirt and touched her over her underwear.

After he was arrested the police seized and examined his mobile phone and found he had a video of the child which was essentially innocent.

But he said labels had been added to the footage suggesting he wanted to have sex with the girl and other things he wanted to do to her.

When he was arrested he told police 'I ain't done nothing wrong', and even after the mobile phone footage was put to him he maintained his innocence.

He has previous convictions for harassment where he sent 'dirty text messages' to females who did not want them.

Shortly before the 2015 offences came to light magistrates imposed an eight-week jail term suspended for two-years for the underwear offences.

An NSPCC spokesperson for South West England said: “This is a disturbing case in which a young boy was the victim of appalling sexual messages.

“This case highlights the dangers children can be exposed to online and on their mobile phones. The modern world offers many opportunities for children, but it also creates new risks, including the potential for unwanted communication with strangers. 

“The NSPCC would urge parents and carers to speak with children from a young age about their safety, equipping them with the skills to navigate technology, in an effort to build trust and openness to keep everyone safe.”
