Hengrove pensioner faces jail for raping teenager on multiple occasions
An 86-year-old Henbury man faces a prison sentence after admitting multiple rape.
Terrence Brown was to due to stand trial in July.
But he appeared at Bristol Crown Court and pleaded guilty to the historical sexual abuse of a woman and teenage girl.
Brown, wearing a grey suit and confined to a mobility scooter, pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting the teenage complainant on six occasions and raping her on six occasions.
He pleaded guilty to two sexual assaults on the woman.
He denied further rape and sexual assault charges on them.
Hannah Squire, prosecuting, said the pleas were acceptable.
Robert Morgan-Jones, defending, said a basis of plea had been submitted to the court.
He did not seek a pre-sentence report.
Judge Michael Cullum adjourned the case for sentence on June 10.
That hearing will involve the sentencing judge, prosecutor and members of the public attending Bristol Crown Court.
But Brown and his barrister will appear via video link from Bristol Magistrates’ Court, which is better able to accommodate wheelchair and mobility scooter users.
The judge told Brown: “You will be given credit when you are sentenced.
“Sentence will be fixed for the 10th of June.
“The magistrates’ court is better able to cope with your disability.
“You must understand that you will receive a custodial sentence on that day.
“Obviously, the sentencing judge will decide how long that sentence should be.”
The judge allowed Brown bail.
Brown declined to comment as he left court.
