Just months after being released on parole, serial groper and former cricketer Jason Trembath is back in prison after contacting women on Tinder.
The 32-year-old was sentenced to five years and four months in prison in June 2019, after admitting 11 charges of indecent assault, involving groping several women during 2017.
Trembath was released on parole on May 4, with strict conditions until his official release date of December 31, 2023. Those conditions included not gambling, and not possessing or using any electronic device capable of accessing the Internet.
So his sentence was 64 months. The Parole Board let him out after just 23 months!
Trembath was recalled to prison on June 16 on the ground of “undue risk and breach of release conditions,” and the Parole Board met on July 8 to discuss his case.
They heard that Trembath admitted he had bought a cell-phone, along with a plan that included Internet data, in May.
A probation officer received information on June 15 that Trembath had created a personal profile and had “recently been contacting women on Tinder,” the New Zealand Parole Board decision said.
No doubt he’ll get parole again in a few months!
