Pervert cries as he admits string of sex offences against children

A pervert cried in court as he admitted nine sex offences against children.

Bradley Challis, 23, wept uncontrollably as he admitted the string of offences, five of which involved a six-year-old boy, when he appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court on Tuesday.

Challis, of Tabor Avenue, Braintree, admitted two charges of sexual assault, one of taking indecent photographs, four of making indecent photographs and two of distributing photographs.

In total Challis made more than 3,000 images of children, took eight films and distributed 13 photographs and 22 films.

He will be sentenced at the same court on July 11.
