A CONVICTED pervert did not tell his new partner he had been jailed for having child pornography.

A court heard Clive Ramm received an order as part of his sentence in 2006, when he was jailed.

He was supposed to tell anyone he had a relationship with about his past, if the partner had children.

But Chelmsford Crown Court was told Ramm denied what he had done when his partner and mother of two teenagers confronted him.

She had heard rumours about his past and the name he was using at the time, but Ramm denied it. The woman was left shocked and upset when matters came to light, the court heard.

Ramm admitted three charges of breaking his order.

The 40-year-old was told to go on a three-year sex offenders’ course.

The court was told Ramm was using the name Clive Lipton when he was jailed in 2006 after child porn was found on his laptop computer.

The order said he must reveal his conviction to any partner with children under 16.

But he failed to do so when he formed a relationship with a woman last year.

Ramm, of Longstraw Close, Stanway, was also ordered to allow police access to any computer, phone or storage device so it could be checked. But the court heard how he refused to tell police what the PIN numbers were on two phones he had.

One was later found to have nothing on it.

The other is still being checked.

Ramm's barrister, David Griffith, said Ramm would benefit from help.
