A CONVICTED child abuser has admitted more sex crimes.

Joseph Rodney Daniels, 60, admitted a string of offences when he appeared at Bradford Crown Court.

And now the paedophile has been warned he could face another jail term.

Daniels, formerly of Highfield Crescent, Meltham, has been given bail by a judge while he waits for his sentence for indecently assaulting two teenage girls in the 1980s.

Daniels will have to live at the Albion Street bail hostel in Dewsbury until he is sentenced by Judge Roger Scott at Bradford Crown Court on Tuesday, April 28.

He was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in March, 2003, for sex offences and yesterday pleaded guilty to five allegations of indecent assault and two further charges of indecency with a child.

The latest offences relate to two complainants - who cannot be identified for legal reasons - and were committed by Daniels between January, 1982, and February, 1989.

Judge Scott agreed to adjourn the case so that a pre-sentence report could be prepared on Daniels.

But he warned him that all sentencing options, including custody, would still be available to him.

The pervert was released from jail only a year ago after being convicted of sex offences against a young girl.

Daniels had been jailed then by Judge Scott at Bradford Crown Court.

He had been convicted at an earlier hearing of a series of indecent assaults on a young girl over a three-year period.

Daniels was also charged with several other sex offences against a second young girl.

But the judge ruled it would not be in the public interests for the trial to go ahead as it would not affect sentencing.

Daniels was a registered foster carer and he was banned from ever working with children again.

The earlier trial was told that the offences came to light only after many years.

The court was told that when the victim was in her late teens she told her mother that Daniels had abused her.
