The son of Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford, who was jailed for raping a 22-year-old woman in 2018, is back behind bars after creating a secret online dating username while on licence.
Jay Humphries, 36, used an unauthorized name on a dating site while on license Police want Humphries to use an authorized name to monitor his online activity
The convicted rapist son of Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford is back behind bars after creating a secret online dating username while on license from prison.
Jay Humphries, who was jailed in 2018 under the name of his ex Jonathan Drakeford after pleading guilty to rape and causing actual bodily harm, used an unauthorized profile name on a dating site, according to the BBC.
Caernarfon Magistrates Court heard the 36-year-old used the name on the Fab Guys website and then deleted the internet browsing history from his phone.
Last week’s hearing was told that police had authorized the use of the Fab Guys account. But mischievous 5007387 was not the name he chose to use.
As part of his use of the site a pre-agreed name was required so police could monitor his online activity.
Caernarfon Magistrates’ Court heard the 36-year-old used the name on the Fab Guys website and then deleted internet browsing history from his phone.
Humphries pleaded guilty to both offenses and will be sentenced on August 11.
The court heard he claimed to have accidentally deleted his internet history.
But Catherine Elvin, prosecuting, said in her guilty plea that this was done deliberately to ‘conceal’ her activities.
‘Sexual harm prevention orders are put in place for a reason,’ Ms Elvin said.
Defending, Gemma Morgan told the court Humphries had found it difficult to adjust to her personal situation after being released from prison and living in approved accommodation in North Wales away from her family.
The court also heard he was dealing with the death of his mother Claire Drakeford, who died in January.
‘He was suffering mentally,’ said Mrs Morgan. ‘She was talking to other men at Fab Guys to express her feelings.’

The court also heard that his feelings were complicated by learning difficulties and autism.
Humphries was taken back to prison after his arrest in Bangor, Gwynedd, in March, the court heard, following other breaches of his release on licence, which included leaving an abusive phone message to a probation officer.
In 2018, Humphries was sentenced to eight years and eight months at Cardiff Crown Court, having pleaded guilty to rape and causing actual bodily harm under her former name.
He also pleaded guilty to a child sex offense after messaging a girl on Facebook who was 15 at the time.
After Humphries’ 2018 conviction, Mark Drakeford said it had been a ‘sad time’ for the family.
“Our thoughts are with those involved, especially the victims,” he said.
