A 46-year-old Waterford man pleaded guilty in the Circuit Criminal Court, last week, to three counts of defilement and one count of attempted defilement of a child under the age of 17 years of age.
The offences occurred on a residential estate in the city on October 18th, 2014.
Barrister Elaine Morgan, defending, applied for sentencing to be adjourned pending the preparation of a probation and welfare report.
Judge Eugene O’Kelly imposed reporting restriction and remanded the accused man on bail to Waterford Circuit Criminal Court on April 5th next. He directed the preparation of a probation report and a victim impact report.
