Rapist jailed for parole breach

A Nottingham child sex offender has been jailed after breaking his parole terms by going to the Philippines.

Kriss McCord, 59, formerly of Westdale Lane, was convicted in 1999 of three counts of rape against a child.

When released in 2005 he was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders' Register but moved to the Philippines, where he was tracked and deported back to the UK.

He was sentenced to 18 months after admitting, at Nottingham Crown Court, breaching his parole.

Justice vow

McCord was originally sentenced to nine years in jail for rape and four counts of indecent assault over several years.

After he left the UK, officers from Nottinghamshire Police and the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, which tracks child sex offenders, traced him and informed Filipino police.

He was arrested two years ago and found to have fake immigration stamps.

McCord was held in a detention centre for two years after appealing against the immigration offence and was subsequently deported and banned from re-entering the country.

Det Supt Jackie Alexander, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This successful prosecution should send out a clear message to any offender being monitored by the police.

"It shows the lengths that we are prepared to go to, to bring them to justice."
