Man admits having sex with a minor
A MAN who pleaded guilty to sexual intercourse with a young person has been further remanded in custody for sentencing.
The defendant pleaded guilty before Judge Cormac Quinn at Wexford Circuit Criminal Court to a charge of having sexual intercourse with a person under 17 years of age.
Informing the court of the guilty plea, Defence Counsel, Philip Sheahan, said the matter before the court is a similar offence to the one which came before the last session, awaiting sentencing on October 25. Both matters, he said, can be accommodated on that date.
He asked that a Probation and Welfare report be provided. Prosecuting Counsel, Sinead Gleeson, also asked for the preparation of a victim impact report.
Judge Quinn said he would remand the defendant in custody to October 25 for sentencing. He said he would also grant a Probation Report.
