A serial sex offender is facing jail again after admitting child sex offences.
The 28-year-old pleaded guilty to attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity, attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming, attempting to have sexual activity with a child and failure to comply with a notification requirement.
The court heard that it is repeat offending and the second substantial breach of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order - the last breach being 18 months ago.
Judge Guy Kearl QC, who asked for a pre-sentence report, told him: “You know that you are facing a significant prison sentence.”
Phillips is due to be sentenced on April 3.
