A 28-year-old paedophile faces sentencing by a crown court judge after he admitted sexually exploiting a primary-school-aged girl in Henlow.

Louis Moss, a serving prisoner, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl under 13 and engaging in sexual activity in a child’s presence when he appeared at Luton Crown Court.

A Royston woman – who we are not naming for legal reasons – admitted neglecting a child’s welfare, as well as engaging in sexual activity in a child’s presence.

The pair pleaded guilty to sexual assault and neglect respectively when they appeared before a Luton Crown Court judge on July 3, but had denied the counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

They changed their pleas on the first day of their trial at the same court last week. Judge Michael Kay QC ordered a second count of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child to lie on file for each of the defendants.
