Kirdford sex offender back in custody


A SEX offender jailed for sleeping with a 14-year-old girl was arrested on Tuesday (April 28) after police lost track of his whereabouts.

Daniel Benjamin White, 31, is serving a three-year jail sentence but was out on licence after being sentenced in September, 2013, for engaging in sexual activity with a child known to him in Chichester.

However on Monday (April 27), Sussex Police said they no longer knew his whereabouts and were seeking him for recall to prison.

An appeal was launched on the Observer’s website and across other media in the county.

At the time of his trial, White lived in School Court, Kirdford.

Police announced he was back in custody after being arrested in Portsmouth.
