Sex offender Jason Jordan given lifelong restriction order

A serial sex offender caught with child pornography after being freed from jail has been given a lifelong restriction order.

Jason Jordan, 52, from Kirkcaldy, Fife, must serve at least four years in jail before he can be considered for parole.

He breached a court order by going online to access indecent images between February and July last year.

Police found 27 video clips, some in the most serious category, and 18 photographs on a phone and tablet.

Jordan previously admitted having indecent images and breaching a sexual offences prevention order.

The hearing at the High Court in Glasgow was told he continued to present "a high risk" and he claimed a reason for committing further offences was "sheer devilment".

It also emerged he had spoken about abducting a boy from a play park, having not "coped well" on being released from prison.

Judge Lady Stacey imposed an Order for Lifelong Restriction (OLR) which means Jordan will be supervised for the rest of life.

She said Jordan had "a bad record" which stretched back decades.

Jordan was also placed on the sex offenders list for an indefinite period.
