Penrith man admits child sex crimes

A man from Penrith will be sentenced by a judge next month after he admitted a number of child sex crimes.

Dane Ashley Chambers, 23, entered guilty pleas to three charges when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court via a prison video link.

Each of these was inciting a child aged under 16 to engage in sexual activity.

The offences were committed by Chambers between 13th July, 2014, and 30th January, 2015.

A pre-sentence report was ordered by Judge Peter Davies, who adjourned the case until 4th July.

Chambers, of Musgrave Street, Penrith, is due to learn his fate on that date.

In the meantime he was remanded in custody.
