Sex offender Trevor Emmett is in jail again after trying to get voluntary work at a community farm visited by children.
Emmett, 41, of Elland, who has been locked up before for breaching the terms of his lifelong sexual offences prevention order, was jailed for 32 months after he went for an interNAview at the project just a few months after being released from prison.
Back in 2012 Emmett, who has also lived in Edward Close, Southowram, was imprisoned after police raided his Elland flat and found hundreds of depraved images of children which he had downloaded. In 2009 he was also locked up after he was found in possession of more than 12,000 indecent images of children.
Bradford Crown Court heard that Emmett told a key worker that he had been making inquiries about voluntary work at the Bradford City Farm.
Prosecutor Paul Nicholson said Emmett’s sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) banned him from seeking employment, voluntary or otherwise, which could allow him unsupervised access to children under 16.
Emmett pleaded guilty to breaching his SOPO for the fourth time and his barrister Lorraine Harris said he now accepted that it was his responsibility to abide by any prevention order imposed by the court.
She said it had not been a case where Emmett had tried to hide his convictions and he was now willing to accept any help that could be given to him.

Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC said contact with under 16s would have been inevitable at the project and he agreed with an assessment that that had been Emmett’s plan and design.
