Ooops, sex offender allowed to give ‘sleeping rough’ as his address
A high-risk serial sex offender disappeared after police allowed him to use “sleeping rough near to the Olympia at Riverside in Dundee” as his address on the sex offenders’ register.
Mark King, 41, had just been released from prison for serving a 13-month sentence for moving on from an address without telling the authorities.
He went missing until he was found sleeping by a children’s playpark and reported by worried parents.
After being placed on the sex offenders’ register for ten years at Edinburgh Sheriff Court in April 2011, King was required to give an address to police and inform them if he moved. But he left Dundee and walked to Perth before ending up 20 miles away in Blairgowrie, living rough beside the playpark.
