North Tivoli man pleads guilty to "child grooming"

A NORTH Tivoli man will be sentenced later this year after pleading guilty to a host of child sex offences.

Keith John Mobbs, 50, fronted Ipswich Magistrates Court this week where he pleaded guilty to two counts of child grooming with the intent to engage in a sexual act.

He also pleaded guilty to one count of child grooming with the intent to expose them to an indecent act.

The court heard the offences occurred between December 19, 2015 and January 7, 2016 at North Tivoli.

Magistrate Deborah Vasta committed the man to the Ipswich District Court for sentencing.

A sentence date has not yet been fixed.

Mobbs remains free on bail.
