Pervert's jail term increased for train incident
7:00am Friday 6th September 2013 in News
A CONVICTED pervert has had another six months added to a prison sentence after he was spotted performing a sex act on a train.
A court heard Rikki Soloman followed a young girl on to a train and sat opposite her before the incident took place.
At the time, he was under the terms of a sex ban order for downloading child porn and sexual activity with a child.
Solomon is in jail serving six months for breaking the order by going to Castle Park in Colchester.
He was supposed to keep away from parks and play areas where children under 16 may be but was seen sitting on a bench in the park by a police support officer.
The latest incident took place after he followed the girl on to a train at Brentwood station.
Andrew Jackson, prosecuting, said Soloman was seen at the station with his cello on May 3.
When he saw the girl, 14, on to a train and sat opposite her before performing a sex act.
Mr Jackson said: "She stood up and tried to move away. His legs were outstretched so she had to step over and he grabbed her leg and gained satisfaction from that as well."
"She was shocked and extremely worried by what had happened to her."
Soloman, 32, of Pownall Crescent, Colchester, had received the sex ban order in 2006 at Gloucester Crown Court for sexual activity with a child and downloading indecent images of children.
The order is in place until 2020.
Soloman admitted committing an act of a lewd, obscene and disgusting nature when he appeared in court and he also admitted breaking his sex order.
He was jailed for six months, added to the six months he received in July for the Castle Park matter.
Judge Anthony Goldstaub QC told Soloman: "Think about your behaviour or you will become an old lag.
"If you persist in conduct of this kind you will spend increasingly longer periods of time in prison."
Nneke Akudolu, mitigating, said Soloman, who has a BTEQ in music performance, was a locksmith and security systems engineer for eight years until his conviction in 2006.
