A Bourne man who admitted sex offences against a 14-year-old girl after grooming her over the internet has been warned he faces jail.

Darren Hadman, 40, of Wetherby Close, Bourne, pleaded guilty to a charge of meeting a child following grooming between February 1 and March 28, 2013, when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court yesterday (Monday).

Hadman also admitted sexual activity with the girl and a charge of inciting the same girl to engage in sexual activity.

He further pleaded guilty to distributing indecent photographs of a child, possession of 318 indecent photographs of children and five charges of making an indecent image of a child.

Judge John Pini QC granted Hadman bail to appear back before the court next month for sentence.

But he told Hadman: “There is no doubt on the evidence that you groomed a girl you knew was 14 years of age and took advantage of her. The offences are very serious and plainly pass the custody threshold.”
