A randy pensioner has been handed an ASBO after being caught with prostitutes – three times in one night.
Derek Edwards, 69, was banned from four red light zones after repeatedly being caught with known prostitutes.
Retiree Edwards, from Wootton Basset, Wilts., was collared during a depraved trip to Bristol on January 8.
Bristol Magistrates’ Court heard on Wednesday that Edwards paid a total of £65 to three different prostitutes, and was initially caught red-handed lying on his back in a park with one performing a sex act upon him.
After being given a stern telling-off by cops, he was released – only to be caught just ninety minutes later paying another prostitute.
Following his second talking-to from police, he was spotted on CCTV at a train station with yet another prostitute, who he later admitted performed a sex act on him in the public toilets.
Prosecuting, Jeremy Oliver said: “I don’t think I have ever seen such a degree of persistence in my time.”
Edwards’ solicitor told magistrates he had not come to Bristol specifically to meet sex workers, but he had been drinking before the incidents.
He added: “I can say on his behalf, that he is not by any means proud.”
Presiding magistrate Rosemary Kirwan fined Edwards £50, and ordered him to pay £105 in costs after he admitted three charges of soliciting a prostitute for sexual services in a public place.
