A CONVICTED paedophile has pleaded guilty to several breaches of a sexual harm prevention order.

Rocky Dino Knight who has previously lost a battle with the Bolton News to keep his name out of the media, appeared before Judge Sara Dodd at Burnley Crown Court on Friday

He pleaded guilty to four breaches of a sexual harm prevention order which was originally imposed upon him in 2019.

The former Farnworth man also pleaded guilty to a further offence of failing to comply with statutory sex offender notification requirements.

The 32-year-old, now of Colne Road, Burnley, was made subject to the order after he admitted the possession and distribution of indecent images of children.

While Knight pleaded guilty to the possession offences in July 2017, he was determined that no one outside the court should know about his crime and sought to persuade a judge to grant him anonymity.

The Bolton News appointed a barrister to fight the case and won.

Knight is set to be sentenced for the breaches in March, when he will also be dealt with for the further breach and failure to comply counts he had already pleaded guilty to in December.
