A CONVICTED serial sex offender has been banned from associating with anyone under the age of 18 after his release from prison.
Gary Dover-Afflick, now living at Cuthbert House, Gateshead who has been described as a Fagin-style Satanist, was given an indefinite sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) at Teesside Magistrates Court this afternoon (Monday, February 11).

Satanist sex offender banned from being near boys under 16
A SERIAL sex offender has been banned from being alone with any young boy under the age of 16 after being released from prison.
Garry Dover-Afflick, who has been described as Fagin-like Satanist, was given an interim sexual offences prevention order in an attempt to prevent him committing any further offences against young boys.
The court heard he had 25 previous convictions for 148 offences.These included blackmail, supplying drugs and indecent assault on boys aged between nine and 14.
The move came after the 47-year-old was realised from custody on Christmas Eve after serving a 12 month sentence for breaching the terms of a previous order.
In September, Teesside Crown Court heard he was arrested after giving police a false name and being continually spotted in the company of young males.
Today, (Monday, January 7), Teesside Magistrates Court heard Dover-Afflick had been served with the papers on the day of his release but he failed to attend court for the hearing.
Jane Smith, representing Cleveland Police, described the sex offender as ‘devious’ and ‘deceptive’ before she told the court the nature of the previous offences were so serious that she didn’t feel they needed to be repeated in open court.
She said: “Dover-Afflick is someone who grooms young people and that’s one of the main concerns that comes out of this application.”
During a previous court case it was reported that Dover-Afflick, previously of Sunnybrow Avenue, Billingham, has 25 previous convictions covering 148 offences.
In 1997, he was jailed for indecently assaulting a boy under 16.
Bristol Crown Court heard how he selected rootless youngsters, usually between nine and 14, and offered them shelter. He gave them drugs, lectured them about Satanism and kept them in line with a series of beatings and sexual assaults.
In 2001, he was jailed for five years at Winchester Crown Court after he was convicted of two counts of indecent assault on a child under 14 and a serious sexual assault of a boy under 16.
A manhunt was launched in 2007 when he went missing after being released from prison, where he was serving time for blackmail, supplying drugs and indecent assault.
When he was found, he was jailed for 30 months at Leeds Crown Court.
The interim order also prevents Dover-Afflick from being in a house with any male over the age of 16 unless they know of his previous convictions.
A full application will be heard at the same court on Monday, February 11.
A Satanist branded a “Fagin-style sex offender” is back behind bars after local residents mounted a campaign to keep local children safe.
People living in Billingham, Teesside, used Facebook to warn others about the whereabouts of convicted child abuser Gary Dover-Afflick, 47, who once sparked a nationwide manhunt when he disappeared.
He was jailed at Teesside Crown Court last week for failing to notify the police that he had changed his name after he gave an officer an unregistered alias.
Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Jason Dickson, of Cleveland Police’s Vulnerability Unit, said: “Cleveland Police have worked closely with residents and partner agencies to address concerns raised in relation to Dover-Afflick.
“Registered sex offenders living in the community have a number of restrictions placed upon them including the requirement to notify the police of any change of name or address.
“These offenders are closely monitored by officers from the Public Protection Unit.
“The close monitoring of this individual led to breaches of his notification requirements being discovered and his prompt arrest and return to custody.”
Dover-Afflick moved to Billingham after serving a sentence for blackmail, supplying drugs and indecent assault on vulnerable boys aged between nine and 14.
He had given wayward youths shelter in squats, then offered them drugs and lectured them about Satanism and kept them in line by dishing out beatings and sexual assaults.
After the 1997 court case he was dubbed in reports a “Fagin-style sex offender” and officers warned the public not to approach him when he disappeared on his release from prison in 2007.
At his court appearance last week, he revealed he was of no fixed address and admitted breaching a court order implemented to protect the public. He will be sentenced later this month.
His worrying presence in Sunnybrow Avenue, Billingham, led locals to hold a number of meetings with police.
Locals claimed children were prevented from playing in the streets and some were too scared to visit the sweet shop in case they bumped into him.
Grandmother Margaret Adam told the Evening Gazette newspaper: “We were just disgusted by it, but the police just couldn’t do anything. It was just disgusting.”
