Teen admits sex abuse charges

A teenager convicted of sexually abusing an underage girl has pleaded guilty to two further sex charges involving the same victim in December 2010.

The teenager, who can't be named for legal reasons, was also convicted earlier this year at Belfast Crown Court of possessing almost 400 indecent images of children.

He appeared in court again yesterday where he also admitted intentionally attempting to incite the under 13-year-old to commit a sexual act.

However, a separate charge of intentionally arranging to sexually abuse the girl was not proceeded with and was allowed to "remain on the books".

Released on continuing bail, he will be sentenced in September.
