Louis Trezise was at St Albans Crown Court and entered a not guilty plea for arranging to meet a child for sex after on-line grooming.
The evidence we provide the CPS is extremely sound and does not give the defendant a chance to make excuses for the crime they have committed.
Trezise knew the plea was wrong and he would end up being found guilty at trial and decided to change his plea.
On Thursday 2 November he entered a guilty plea and was made to sign the sex offenders register, along with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which prevents his access to children under the age of 16.
Trezise was told he faces a jail sentence for the crime, and he will sentenced on Tuesday 28 November at St Albans Crown Court.
