Convicted Leeds sex trafficker Jozef Sztojka faces deportation to Hungary after completing his sentence.

The court heard it would be down to the Home Office to make the decision.

Judge Neil Clark said: “I cannot see what benefit he brings to this country at all.”

Sztojka came to the UK from Hungary after being unable to find work in his home country.

His barrister, Sean Smith, said Sztojka initially began working at a car wash after entering the UK and was sending money home for his partner and child.

Mr Smith said Sztojka was then injured in a car accident and was unable to work.

He said the offending took place at a time when he was unable to earn any money for himself or his family.

Sztojka was also made the subject of a Slavery and Trafficking Prevention Order.

The order means he is prohibited from possessing debit or credit cards belong to another person other than a family member.

He is also banned from employing people or possessing documents belong to anyone else other than family members.

Sztojka is also banned from crossing international borders with anyone else other than a family member.
