Sex attacker expects long sentence

crowncourt-1024x682A BOW STREET man was warned last Friday (May 6) to expect “a very lengthy” prison sentence after he admitted a string of sex offences against a girl.

Christopher Jordan, aged 42, appeared before Judge Keith Thomas at Swansea Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing.

But his barrister, Dyfed Thomas, told the court there would be no need for a trial as he wished to enter pleas of guilty as soon as possible.

Jordan, of Unit 1, Lower Warehouse, Pen-y-Garn, admitted sexual activity with a child.

Jordan also entered guilty pleas to three charges of taking indecent photographs of a child.

Mr Thomas said Jordan wished to be sentenced there and then.

He said he appreciated that only a very lengthy prison sentence would be the outcome.

But Judge Keith Thomas said the offending was so serious he would have to consider whether to pass an extended sentence.

He said he would sentence Jordan on May 20 after a probation officer had prepared a report into his background and made recommendations.

Jordan was remanded in custody meanwhile.
