Man admits five sex offences against two underage girls

A man has admitted a string of sexual offences against two underage schoolgirls.

Nathan Stott, 22, pleaded guilty to five charges at Teesside Crown Court on Wednesday.

He admitted three counts of sexual activity with a child, touching a 15-year-old girl between August and December 2015.

He also admitted two counts of causing or inciting a 13-year-old girl to engage in sexual activity, involving touching her and asking her to send him indecent images of herself, in March last year.

All of the crimes were committed on Teesside.

He denied two more charges of sexually assaulting a third teenage girl in December 2014 and asking her for indecent images of her body in March 2015.

Prosecutor Jenny Haigh said the five guilty pleas were acceptable and the Crown would not pursue the denied allegations.

Stott, of Park Way, Huyton, Liverpool, was bailed until he is sentenced on August 4.

Judge Sean Morris told him: “You’ve done the right thing in pleading guilty.

“The court will deal with you in August when it has the reports.

“Do not read into that any indication as to sentence. It’s up to the judge on the day what he does with you.”
