[Ed. – Well, at least the media felt this was worth reporting.  Imagine if it were considered no big deal.]

A man has been banned from having sex with a woman unless he gives police 24 hours warning.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, must also tell officers in North Yorkshire the name of the woman he plans to have sex with before engaging in any form of sexual activity.

If the man wishes to have sex outside the North Yorkshire Police force area, he must instead contact the relevant local police force. …

The conditions were imposed on the man by way of an interim sexual risk order, requested by North Yorkshire Police. …

The man will be bound by the civil order even though he has not been convicted of a sexual offence.

Breaching a sexual risk order can result in a five-year prison sentence.
