A convicted sex offender has been jailed after sexually exploiting a teenage boy.

Frank Logan, 55, of Baguley Crescent in Middleton, was sentenced at Minshull Street Crown Court yesterday (12 February).

The court heard how in 2017 Logan groomed a 14-year-old boy he met in Tameside.

On a number of occasions he took the boy to his flat in Middleton where he would smoke cannabis with him before persisting that the boy engage in sexual activity with him.

At the time of the offences Logan was under a sexual harm prevention order for committing sexual activity with a child in 2014. This prohibited him from having contact with any children without the parent’s consent and knowledge of his previous offending. But Logan tried to conceal the offending from authorities before the boy disclosed what had happened to him.

Logan was sentenced to six years in prison and was also given an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.
