A man who was accused of raping a woman, has been ordered to notify the police each time he plans on having sex with a woman, according to court documents in the United Kingdom.

The York Magistrate’s Court ordered the 40-year-old man, who was not identified, to notify the nearest police station each time he plans on having sex with a woman so that officers can make sure that the relationship is consensual.

The man was acquitted of rape after claiming that the sexual encounter was consensual. Despite the victory, the court extended a sexual order for four months.

The sexual order requires the man to reveal any planned sexual activity to the police or face up to five years in prison. The man must provide the police with the woman’s address, phone number and date of birth.

At the next court hearing, a judge will decide whether the temporary order should be made into a full order, which has a minimum duration of two years and can last forever.

Sexual Risk Orders can be applied to anyone who police believe poses a risk to the public even if they have never been convicted of a crime.
