Cardiff Crown Court heard the abuse took place in the summer of 2018.

Parsons admitted attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming and six counts of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.


The defendant was represented by Eugene Egan who asked for the case to be adjourned for a pre-sentence report.

Judge Daniel Williams set a sentence date of February 12 and warned Parsons, who was granted conditional bail, he could be facing a prison sentence.

Nigel Fryer appeared for the prosecution.
