LONDON - JANUARY 13: Metropolitan Police officers stand guard as suspects involved in the manufacture of the deadly poison Ricin appear at Bow Street Magistrates court January 13, 2003 in London. Four people appeared in court charged under the Terrorism Act of 2000 with "possession of articles of value to a terrorist" and under the Chemical Weapons Act of 1996 with "being concerned in the development or production of chemical weapons." The suspects were arrested last week after a raid on a flat in Wood Green in north London uncovered traces of the poison. (Photo by Ian Waldie/Getty Images)

British Man Ordered to Tell Police If He Plans to Have Sex

Jan 22, 2016

A British man has been ordered to give police 24 hours notice before he has sex, according to media reports.

The York resident, who has not been named, was cleared last December of allegations that he raped a woman, according to a report in the York Press. Authorities nonetheless decided to extend an interim order restricting his sexual activity until May. The man could receive up to five years of prison if he is found to violate the order.

The order requires the man to tell the police the woman's name, address and date of birth before a sexual encounter. It also requires him to inform police about his internet use, texting and phone calls.
