A man has admitted breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order by having contact on social media with a 13-year-old girl ‘with a view to establishing a relationship or meeting’.

Richard David McCrea (39), whose address was given as Kent Avenue in Larne, committed the offence in March 2018.

He also admitted harassment of a female on dates between December 2017 and April last year.

A third charge of failing to notify police of a change to his name within three days in contravention of the Sexual Offences Act was left on the books.

The defendant was remanded in custody and the case at Antrim Crown Court was adjourned to February for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
