Bradford man admits cruelty to young girl
8:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
A Bradford man has pleaded guilty to cruelty to a girl aged six.
The man, in his 20s, cannot be named to protect the identity of the child.
He will be sentenced on October 11 after the preparation of reports.
He denied a second offence of causing the youngster actual bodily harm and that was accepted by the Crown.
Prosecutor Sophie Drake told Bradford Crown Court yesterday the cruelty charge represented a course of conduct over three weeks in the summer of last year, and included smacking the child.
The man’s bail was extended to the next hearing.
