A convicted child sex attacker who was caught with Chihuahuas – despite being barred from keeping them because he used them to “attract girls” – has received a suspended sentence.
George Calf, 71, of Mabley Street, South Hackney, was caught breaching the ban when he complained to police one of them had been stolen on May 16. Officers then visited his home to take a statement about the theft and found another dog there.
Calf, who was found guilty in 2009 of sexually assaulting a child under 14 in the 1980s, had been ordered not to keep dogs in March under a sexual harm prevention order.
But he continued to keep six of the dogs, which are named after kids’ toys like Ken, Barbie and Sindy, Thames Magistrates’ Court heard on Tuesday.
Calf received an eight-week jail sentence suspended for one year for both breaches, to run concurrently.
