A MAN convicted of sexually assaulting four teenage girls has admitted failing to inform the authorities when he moved to new addresses in Chester and Ellesmere Port.

Rasim Akdemir, 44, was placed on the sex offenders register following his conviction in 2015 at Taunton Crown Court, Somerset.

This means he is required to tell the police whenever he moves house.

He was originally registered to an address in Stafford in the West Midlands but recently moved first to his sister’s house in London between March 25 and April 1 this year and then to Cheshire.

Akdemir failed to tell the authorities that he was living at an address in Ellesmere Port between April 1 and April 16 and then at two guest houses in Chester between April 16 and May 3.

Chester Magistrates Court heard on Friday (May 24) that a council housing officer googled his name and alerted police after reading about the defendant’s previous conviction.

Akdemir, whose wife is pregnant, apologised for the oversight saying he had been under a lot of stress.

His case was adjourned for sentencing until June 20 by which time the Probation Service will have compiled a pre-sentence report on him.
