A SEX offender has been jailed for multiple offences including sexual activity with a teenage boy.
Matthew Anthony, from Lincoln Meadows in Stafford, but formerly of Ness Grove, Cheadle, was sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on Thursday 17th February.
He was jailed for two-and-a-half years.
The 32-year-old pleaded guilty in January to three counts of making indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of a child and eight counts of causing a male aged 13 or over to engage in sexual activity.
MOORLANDS policing commander Inspector Mark Thorley has assured Cheadle Town Council that in spite of the recent, temporary closure of the enquiry desk at Cheadle Police Station, the force will continue to operate from the facility in Chapel Street for the foreseeable future.
The police authority say a shortfall in staffing is to blame for the closure of the enquiry desk which, for a period of several months has been left unmanned with the front doors locked to members of the public.
