Man acquitted in rape case ordered to inform police 24 hours before he plans to have sex


In one of the strangest orders pronounced in a sexual assault case, a man in York, England has been told to inform the police 24 hours in advance in case he plans to engage in any form of sexual activity with a woman.

The 40-year-old man, whose name was not disclosed due to legal reasons, was acquitted in 2015 in a rape case retrial after claiming that the alleged victim had consented to have sex with him, according to BBC.

The interim sexual risk order, telling him to inform the police about any sexual activity beforehand, was initially imposed in December, said the report.

"You must disclose the details of any female including her name, address and date of birth. You must do this at least 24 hours prior to any sexual activity taking place," the report quoted the order as saying.

The York Press further reported that the man also needs to inform the police about every phone and device that he can use to access the internet or call or text people.

The report further said that full sexual risk orders last for a minimum of two years and are used by police after they convince a court that the order is necessary for an accused even if he or she has been acquitted of all charges.
