Son of Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford who was jailed for raping a 22-year-old woman in 2018 is behind bars again after creating a secret online dating username while on licence
- Jay Humphries, 36, used an unapproved name on a dating site while on licence
- Police required Humphries to use approved names to monitor his online activity
The convicted rapist son of Welsh Frist Minister Mark Drakeford is behind bars again after he created a secret online dating username while on licence from prison.
Jay Humphries, who was jailed in 2018 after being found guilty of rape and inflicting actual bodily harm under his previous name of Jonathan Drakeford, used an unapproved profile name on a dating site, according to the BBC.
Caernarfon Magistrates Court heard that the 36-year-old used the name on the Fab Guys website, and then deleted internet browsing history from his phone.
The hearing last week was told the use of the Fab Guys account had been approved by police. But the name he chose to use, naughty 5007387, was not.
A previously agreed upon name was required as part of his use of the site so that police could monitor his activity online.

Humphries admitted both offences and is set to be sentenced on August 11.
The court heard that he claimed to have deleted his internet history by accident.
But Catherine Elvin, prosecuting, said his guilty plea suggested it had been done deliberately in a bid to ‘conceal’ his activity.
‘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 come to terms with his personal situation upon his release from prison, and having to live in approved accommodation in north Wales, away from his family.
The court also heard that he had been dealing with the death of his mother, Clare Drakeford, who died in January.
‘He was suffering emotionally,’ Ms Morgan said. ‘He was speaking to other men on Fab Guys expressing his feelings.’

The court also heard that his feelings were compounded by learning difficulties and Autism.
Humphries had since been recalled to prison after he was arrested in Bangor, Gwynedd, in March, the court heard, following other breaches of his release on licence, which included leaving an abusive phone message for a probation officer.
In 2018, Humphries was handed an eight year and eight month sentence at Cardiff Crown Court, having being found guilty of rape and inflicting actual bodily harm, under his former name.
He also admitted to a child sexual offence after messaging a girl on Facebook who he thought was 15 years old at the time.
After Humphries’s 2018 conviction, Mark Drakeford said it had been a ‘distressing period’ for the family.
‘Our thoughts are with all those caught up in it, especially the victim’, he said.
