James Clayton, a violent male transvestite, was convicted at Northampton Crown Court in 2005 of gross indecency and sexual activity against a young girl between April 2003 and October 2004. He wore his wife’s underwear while committing the offences.

Clayton, 66, avoided jail and was given a three year community order. He was subject to restrictions which meant he could only go on holiday or stay away overnight with the express permission of his probation officer. He breached this order just months after his conviction by purchasing a tent and staying away from home in Skegness.

He was also made subject to a sex offences prevention order banning him working as a coach driver or any contact with his victim or her family.

Concerned parents from the village where Clayton was housed presented a petition to South Northamptonshire Council to rehouse the offender, but were overruled by a male Tory councillor, Tony Wilkinson.
