A HEREFORD sex offender has seen more time added to his prison sentence after admitting two further offences.

Nathan Harrison entered guilty pleas to one charge of failing to provide a specimen for analysis as a vehicle driver and one of possessing controlled class A drug, heroin, when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford in December.

The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 37-year-old had failed to provide a sample of blood for a laboratory test without reasonable excuse when required to do so by police during the course of an investigation into whether he had committed an offence on June 19.

He had also been in possession of a quantity of controlled class A drug heroin on the same date, the court heard.


Magistrates said that only a custodial sentence could be justified as the offences were so serious and as Harrison is already serving a custodial sentence.

Harrison, formerly of Whitecross, Hereford, and now of Malvern Road, Worcester, was handed a three-year driving ban and a one-month prison sentence, which will be served consecutively to his 13-year sentence, imposed by a crown court in December for abusing two girls over a six-year period.

The heroin was ordered to be forfeited and destroyed.
