Roberts, of Kinmel Avenue, Abergele was today sentenced at Caernarfon Crown Court after admitting three breaches of the sex offenders’ act.

Michael Whitty, prosecuting, said Roberts breached the act by using an alternative name without telling the police, by not stating that a child under 18 was in his company and not notifying the police of a change of address.

Mr Whitty said after his release from prison, Roberts had formed a relationship with a woman on a dating site and they agreed to meet.

They then spent time together at her house when her young child was there with Roberts being left alone with the child for 20 minutes while she had a shower.

They also went for days out together.

Mr Whitty said: “On one occasion he spoke to his dad using a different name and she challenged him and contacted the police.”

Judge Huw Rees said: “When you introduced yourself to your father as Glenn, you said it was a nickname. She didn’t believe it.”

Sentencing Roberts, who is on the sex offender’s register and also has a Sexual Harm Prevention Order until 2026, Judge Huw Rees said: “Further work needs to be done to prevent you from having any contact with children.

“You are not supposed to have any contact at all. This sentence is designed to protect the public. You need to curb your tendencies. This is a three-year community order and a programme requirement. You are to attend also a sexual offenders programme with a rehabilitation requirement of 56 days.

“This is your last chance to get yourself sorted out.”

Days after his previous conviction, Roberts’ devastated partner told how she’d ‘lived a lie’ for 13 years after only discovering Roberts’ crimes two weeks before his court case.

Mr Parry said: “In fairness, he’s set out to try and have a relationship with some females and has done so using a dating website and false name.

“There’s no suggestion anyone has been photographed or anything inappropriate done.”

But Sarah Marsh, prosecuting, said: “It’s not a transient or trifling breach.”

Roberts will appear for sentence at Caernarfon Crown Court on August 11.
