Shane Hookey is back in jail after failing to comply with reporting obligations.

A GRAFTON man is serving a two month jail sentence for failing to comply with his reporting obligations under the Child Protection Act.

Shane Anthony Hookey, 28, of Grafton was convicted in December 2005 of sexual intercourse without consent in a Sydney District Court and was sentenced to six years jail with a non-parole period of four years, six months.

Police began trying to locate Hookey, who was released from jail in 2010, in October last year when he failed to report to police in the Werrington area, in Western Sydney.

He was not at his stated address for the next two months when police checked and his sister told police that he "took off" before Christmas.

Grafton police spotted Hookey in Fitzroy St in the Grafton CBD on August 16 and arrested him.

The police report tendered to the court said Hookey had a history of aggravated robbery.

He was sentenced for the breach of parole conditions in Grafton Local Court on Monday, August 20.
