A Milford Haven paedophile "who learned nothing" from his last sentence has today received a 12 year extended prison sentence.

Michael Barnard, aged 50, completed an internet sex offences programme - but went on to indulge in internet sex with another underage girl.

Barnard, of Charles Street, was today (Monday) jailed for six years but will be on licence and liable to be recalled to jail for an additional six years.

Barnard admitted contacting a 15-year-old girl over the internet and trying to persuade her to have sexual intercourse with him.

Swansea crown court heard that in 2013 he had been convicted of trying to persuade a 13-year-old girl to expose her naked body to him, again via the Internet.

Judge Keith Thomas said in 2015 he had breached an order made by the sentencing judge but had managed to complete an Internet sex offenders programme.

"But you learned nothing that might deter you.

"I have no doubt that you pose a significant risk of serious harm by the commission of similar offences."

Barnard admitted a charge of inciting an underage girl to take part in sexual activity.

Judge Thomas told him: "You need to change your ways."

Barnard was told he would serve a minimum of four years behind bars and would not be released until the authorities were satisfied he no long posed a danger to underage girls.

Barnard was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order, restricting his access to the Internet after his release.

Judge Thomas also issued an order preventing Barnard from contacting the girl via the internet or in person.
