A man dubbed a “sexual predator” has been banned from going into pubs after 9pm or having having sex without informing the police.
Nicholas Crawshaw, 23, has been given an interim Sex Risk Order (SRO) by West Cheshire magistrates which restricts him from having sexual contact without telling the police beforehand.
Mr Crawshaw was cleared by a Warrington Crown Court jury of six counts of rape, two of sexual assault and two of assault by penetration against eight different women.
In February he was cleared of six counts of rape, one of sexual assault and one of assault by penetration against two women in a different trial and in 2015 he was cleared of one count of rape.
But on Friday Cheshire Police brought civil proceedings against him to impose an SRO after they said Mr Crawshaw was a “sexual predator”.
