A paedophile who received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to sexual activity with a girl and possessing child pornography has now admitted 13 counts of arranging the trafficking of children for sex.
Simeon Osen, of Forest Lane in Chigwell, was sentenced to an eight month suspended sentence on October 7 last year after pleading guilty to four counts of sexual activity with a girl aged between 13 and 17, three counts of making indecent images of a child and two counts of possessing extreme pornography between September 2010 and February 2013.
The 53-year-old has now admitted 13 of 20 charges against him for procuring children for sex abroad during the same period.
Osen appeared at Harrow Crown Court on October 10 and entered his guilty plea.
He is due to appear at the same court on November 6 for sentencing.
Osen’s suspended sentence was referred to the Attorney General following a complaint it was too lenient.
But the sentence was upheld.
A spokesman for the Attorney General said at the time: “The Solicitor General considered that the judge applied the relevant sentencing guidelines and took account of all relevant factors.
“He does not consider that the Court of Appeal would interfere with the sentence and has decided not to refer it.”
