Man admits string of sex offences against girl

A BOW STREET man was warned to expect “a very lengthy” prison sentence after he admitted a string of sex offences against a girl.

Christopher Jordan, 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 Pen-y-Garn, admitted sexual activity with a child and 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 20 May after a probation officer had prepared a report into his background and made recommendations.

Jordan was remanded in custody meanwhile.
