Penrith sex crime man jailed for five years.
A PENRITH man who committed a string of child sex crimes has been jailed for five years by a judge.
Dane Ashley Chambers, 23, was locked up on Friday at Carlisle Crown Court. He had previously pleaded guilty to four offences against a female aged under 16.
These were three counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, and also a child abduction charge.
The lengthy prison term was imposed by Judge Peter Davies, who concluded that Chambers had targeted a “particularly vulnerable” victim.
He was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for life, and made subject to the strict terms of a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years.
Chambers, of Musgrave Street, Penrith, was also told by Judge Davies: “These are serious offences, Mr Chambers, by a grown adult against a very young, vulnerable girl.”
Penrith man admits child abduction charge.
A MAN has appeared at Carlisle Crown Court and pleaded guilty to a child abduction charge.
Dane Ashley Chambers, 23, admitted detaining a child aged under 16 without lawful authority or reasonable excuse.
The crime is said to have been committed in the Penrith area earlier this year.
Having entered the plea, Chambers had his case adjourned.
He is due to be sentenced for that offence – and three others – at the crown court in mid-September.
During a previous hearing he admitted three counts of inciting a child aged under 16 to engage in sexual activity.
In the meantime Chambers, of Norfolk Road, Penrith, was remanded in custody by Judge Peter Davies.

Dane Ashley Chambers, 23, entered guilty pleas to three charges when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court via a prison video link.
Each of these was inciting a child aged under 16 to engage in sexual activity.
The offences were committed by Chambers between 13th July, 2014, and 30th January, 2015.
A pre-sentence report was ordered by Judge Peter Davies, who adjourned the case until 4th July.
Chambers, of Musgrave Street, Penrith, is due to learn his fate on that date.
In the meantime he was remanded in custody.
Penrith man with 56 previous convictions jailed
A PENRITH man has been sent to a young offenders institute for six months after committing two crimes while subject to a suspended sentence.
Dane Ashley Chambers, 21, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court yesterday (FRI) having admitted charges of theft and receiving stolen goods.
He was sent to prison for a total of 26 weeks, after Mr. Recorder Grice heard details of his offences and learned that Chambers, of Musgrave Street, had 56 previous convictions for 33 different offences.
Mr. Recorder Grice said “it would not be unjust” to activate the suspended custodial sentence, given the most recent crimes and the fact that “almost all” of his 56 previous convictions has been for dishonesty.
