Former vicar admits child sex assaults

A former vicar jailed for possessing thousands of child porn images admitted today a string of child sex assault charges days before his release from prison.

Richard Hart, 60, of Beguildy, near Knighton, mid Wales, admitted nine counts of sexually assaulting a schoolgirl over a prolonged period from April 2000.

During a brief appearance at Merthyr Crown Court he also admitted one count of inciting a child to commit an act of gross indecency.

Hart, a father-of-five and former priest-in-charge of four south Powys parishes, was charged with the offences while in prison in March.
