Man, 52, admits to sexual assault

A Welshpool man has admitted a sexual assault charge

Simon Thomas, 52, of Brookfield Road, appeared in the dock at Mold Crown Court on Friday, facing a charge of sexual assault.

He pleaded guilty to the offence, which dates back to January last year.

Judge Nicolas Parry told him that he would receive full credit in sentencing for pleading guilty at such an early stage.

He ordered Thomas to register with the police as a sex offender, asked for a pre-sentence report, and said that all sentencing options would have to remain open at this stage.

Thomas was re-bailed pending sentence next month, on July 10.
