A persistent child sex offender who continued to commit offences even after being arrested has been jailed again.

Alfie Davies, aged 22, was defined by a judge as a dangerous offender and jailed for 15 months.

Davies, of Pyllaucoediog, Taliaris, Llandeilo, admitted possessing indecent images of children in all categories A, B and C, distributing images of categories B and C, attempting to incite a child to commit a sexual act and breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

Judge Paul Thomas, sitting at Swansea crown court, told Davies he had jailed him last year for similar offences.

At that sentencing hearing he had had to decide whether to class him as a dangerous offender as he had been before the court before for similar offences.

"By the narrowest of margins, I did not," he said.

But afterwards it was discovered that Davies had committed the latest crimes.

"What I did not know was that while awaiting sentencing you continued, undeterred, to commit more offences."

Judge Thomas said if he had been aware he would have passed consecutive sentences.

"You cannot be taken at your word," he told Davies. "You are persistent, devious and blatant, and you ignore court orders even while on bail."

Judge Thomas said Davies would now be classed as a dangerous offender and said his licence period, once he had served his new sentence, would be extended to September, 2023.

If he reoffended during that time he could be returned to jail immediately.

Judge Thomas issued a fresh sexual harm prevention order, restricting Davies' behaviour for the next 10 years.
