On Friday, the Oxford Crown Court heard that he was interviewed in December 2020 about the use of the chat room website “MeetUp.”

He gave the police officer the wrong login details twice. The two-year battle to crack his phone could only confirm that he was using the website and did not reveal anything about what he was doing.

He was released in November 2021 after a 10-month remand mission. Within two months he returned to trouble with the police.

On January 26th of this year, it turned out that he was using his friend’s phone to access WhatsApp and his new email account. Police surveillance software was not installed on my friend’s phone.

The next day, an officer visited him at his house in Oxford. He wasn’t obedient at first, but eventually opened the door.

When asked if he had an internet-enabled device, he said he only had a simple Nokia handset. But when police officers found the smartphone and SIM card packages, it was revealed as a lie – and finally found the smartphone hidden under the oven.

Prosecutor Christopher Pennbridge told the court that De Banks had admitted to using the library’s computer in a police interview. This represents another breach of his sexual harm prevention order, as the computer does not store internet history.

He was said to have been very difficult in early childhood.

Judge Michael Gledhill QC has sentenced him to two years in prison and described the defendant as a “perfect liar.” “You can’t help yourself [from] to lie. “
