A 60-year-old man from Worcester has admitted sexual assault.

Declin Dreslin of Barbourne Road, admitted the assault when he appeared at Worcester Crown Court on Tuesday.

The offence took place on August 8 this year. By his plea he admitted that the touching was sexual and that he knew the woman did not consent and that he did not reasonably believe she was consenting.

Paul Whitfield, prosecuting, said the defendant had a previous conviction for being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

Nicholas Berry, defending, said Dreslin had not committed any offences between 2009 and 2017.

He requested a pre-sentence report to be prepared which involves Dreslin being interviewed by a probation officer.

The sentencing is expected to take place on October 31 this year.

Judge Nicolas Cartwright told him he would get between a third and a quarter discount in the length of any sentence to reflect his guilty plea but said he could make no promises about what the sentence would be.

Because Dreslin now stands convicted of a sexual offence the notification and registration provisions apply which means he must inform police of any changes to his name or address.

His bail condition is not to be drunk in a public place.
