A 60-YEAR-OLD man pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault when he appeared at Aylesbury Crown Court today.
Christopher Stovold had been due to appear before Judge Francis Sheridan for the first day of a three day trial.
But the interior designer from Cheshunt, Hertfordshire – who had previously admitted two of the charges – changed his not guilty plea on a third to guilty, meaning the trial was not needed.
Stovold admitted two charges of indecent assault and one count of indecency with a child. The offences took place in Milton Keynes when the victim, now 17, was only 13 years old.
He will appear before the same court on June 15 for sentencing.
Stovold will also be forced to sign the Sex Offenders Register and as part of his bail will not be allowed within one mile of Central Milton Keynes.
