Child sex offender, 19, admits breaking order

A 19-year-old has admitted to child sex offences over a period of two months, and to breaking his sexual harm prevention order.

Paul Walker also pleaded guilty to sending messages of a sexual nature to another girl at his hearing at Shrewsbury Crown Court. He will be sentenced in September.

Walker admitted seven counts of sexual activity with a 15 year old girl, one of sexual communication with another girl and one of breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

All of the crimes took place between early March and late May of this year.

The court heard that Walker messaged the second girl on a Playstation 4 games console.

His sexual harm prevention order had been handed down in December 2016 after a previous offence. He breached it by not informing the 15 year old or her parents it was in force.

In adjourning the case for sentencing, judge Jonathon Gosling told Walker: “These are very serious offences and I am very concerned about you.”

Walker’s address was given only as Brinsford Prison, Brinsford.
