Kinmel Bay man pleads guilty to string of child sex offences for second time

A convicted sex offender was back in court today after breaking an order to stop him committing child sex crimes again.

Paul Matthew Proudman, 37, of Cae Blodau, Kinmel Bay, appeared at Caernarfon Crown Court today after admitting 18 new offences.

Judge Huw Rees adjourned the case for pre-sentence reports.

All of the offences were said to have happened between January and February this year.

Judge Rees said Proudman will be sentenced on September 6.

He told Proudman: “Custody will be at the forefront of a judge’s mind.

“We need to know as much a possible about you and what makes you behave in this way.”

Proudman admitted three counts of making indecent photographs of a child, two of possession of indecent photographs of a child, two of making indecent photographs of a child, two of possessing extreme pornographic photographs and one count of attempting to cause a child to engage in sexual activity.

He also pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to incite a child to take indecent photograph of herself, three counts of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity, two of attempting to possess indecent images.

Proudman also admitted one count of breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO).

He was handed the SOPO in 2011 for “similar offences”, his defending barrister Dafydd Roberts told the court.

Proudman was bailed on condition that he lives and stays every night at the address he gave in court and co-operates with the probation service.
