A Wiltshire sex offender who was banned from contact with his
young children following imprisonment last year has won the first
round of a high court challenge against the injunction.
Mr Justice Ouseley ruled that the “total and complete” ban may
be contrary to the man’s right to a family and private life under
the European Convention on Human Rights.
It means the father who cannot be named for legal reasons, will
now be able to mount a full judicial review of the decision. The
court heard that social services were concerned he was grooming one
of his own children for abuse.
The man was convicted last year of one count of rape and two of
indecent assault. He also admitted 15 other counts of sex offences
