A SCHOOL sports coach who was jailed for having sex with a 14-year-old in a classroom has avoided being sent back to prison – despite breaching a court order.

Glyn Harrison, previously known as Glyn Thompson, had been working in a primary school in Burnley when the original offences took place back in 2011-2013.

In September 2013 he was sentenced to eight years in prison for the offences and was also made the subject of a sexual offence prevention order and notification requirements.

At the time Preston Crown Court heard how the then 30-year-old had groomed and had a sexual relationship with his victim over an 18-month period.

His teenage victim even took a pregnancy test to ensure she wasn’t carrying the Burnley teacher’s baby.

It was heard how Thompson - who has since changed his surname to Harrison in an attempt to hide his past - had "groomed" the youngster over a series of weeks, initially swapping e-mails and then exchanging naked pictures of each other.

But this eventually progressed to kissing, oral sex and then full intercourse with the girl.

On Monday, Burnley Crown Court heard how Harrison had breached the SOPO by having unsupervised contact with a female child under 16 years of age, without the approval of social services and the child’s parent was unaware of his convictions.

He had also breached his sex offender notification requirements by not informing the relevant authorities where he was residing and staying for a period of seven days or more where a child under 18 resides.

Harrison, 40, of Meadow Bank Mews, Nelson, pleaded guilty to the charges at an earlier hearing.

He was jailed for two years, suspended for 24 months, with a seven-month curfew and 20 Rehabilitation Action Requirement Days.

Katie Lord, Senior Crown Prosecutor for CPS North West said: “Thompson changed his name to Harrison in an attempt to leave his past behind him.

"He didn’t disclose his past offending to the women he dated so they could make informed decisions and he failed to adhere to the SOPO and notification requirements put in place to protect children from him reoffending.

"I hope this conviction and sentence will remind him and others of the consequences of breaching sexual offences prevention orders and notification requirements.”
