A "DANGEROUS, predatory paedophile" is today starting his second prison sentence.
Former Meltham man Joseph Daniels had admitted abusing two teenage girls in the 1980s.
In March, 2003, the sex fiend was jailed for three-and-a-half years after a jury convicted him of sexually abusing a young girl.
But two weeks after his release last September, Daniels, 60, was charged with further sex offences relating to the two teenagers.
Yesterday he appeared before the same judge at Bradford Crown Court.
Daniels, formerly of Highfield Crescent, Meltham, admitted five charges of indecent assault and two of indecency with a child.
Judge Roger Scott sentenced him to 28 months in jail.
Judge Scott said Daniels would stay on the sex offenders' register for the rest of his life. He also imposed an indefinite sexual offences prevention order.
Under the order, Daniels is banned from having any child under 16 in his car unless there is an appropriate adult present. He is also banned from having any youngster in his house or place of residence.
If Daniels breaks the order he faces up to five years in jail.
Prosecutor Mark McKone said the two victims - who are now grown women but cannot be identified for legal reasons - were sexually abused by Daniels over a three-year period in the 1980s.
The court heard that Daniels, who has been living at a bail hostel in Leeds, would indecently assault the girls in his car in a lay-by. He also sexually abused them at a house he was renovating in Netherton.
One of the victims described an occasion when a friend of Daniels turned up and the former builder offered to give her money if she let his friend touch her. But she refused.
Both women had submitted statements to the court. Mr McKone said one of them had stabbed herself in the stomach because of her feelings of self-disgust.
He said the woman had also suffered flashbacks and nightmares for many years, as well as sleeping and eating disorders.
The other victim was said to be over-protective of her own children, because of her fear that they might be abused.
Barrister Martin Robertshaw, for Daniels, said his client's best mitigation was the fact that his guilty pleas had spared the victims the ordeal of giving evidence in court.
Daniels walked into court with the aid of a crutch. Mr Robertshaw said his client was in poor health and on a waiting list for hip and shoulder operations.
He said Daniels' wife was standing by him and described their relationship as solid.
Judge Scott told Daniels he would receive maximum credit for his guilty pleas, but he expressed concern about the fact that he did not accept he had done anything wrong.
He added: "The difficulty in this case is that, in my view, you have not changed one iota.
"Indeed, the pre-sentence report upon you has firmed me up in my view that you are a paedophile, will always be a paedophile and you are a serious and continuing danger to all children under the age of 16," added Judge Scott.
He said that although some of the prohibitions under the sexual offences prevention order might appear to be draconian, every single one was completely justified.
The judge told Daniels: "You are a dangerous, predatory paedophile.
"You will not change and you will never change and you present a continuing danger to children under 16," said the judge.
Judge Scott admitted that the victims and their relatives may not approve of the length of the jail sentence.
But he said there was nothing he could do about that, because he had to be fair to the defendant and to justice.
