Pervert admits nine child grooming charges

A pervert admitted nine counts of grooming children.

Craig Tew, 42, of Dodds Court, Shotton , appeared at Mold Crown Court today to face 12 charges.

He pleaded guilty to three of engaging in sexual communication with a child, four of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, and two offences of attempting to meet a girl under the age of 16 following grooming.

They were alleged to have happened in October 2017.

Tew denied three other charges of possessing indecent images of children on October 28, 2017.

Judge Rhys Rowlands agreed to allow them to lie on file.

The judge ordered a pre-sentence report and adjourned the case until October 8 2018.

Tew was bailed with conditions that he keeps appointments with probation staff.
