Two Doncaster men will be sentenced by Sheffield Crown Court in December for committing a series of sex crimes against children throughout the country over a number of years. Anthony Marsh and Lee Davis had appeared in court last month where they pleaded guilty to a total of 55 offences at a plea and case management hearing. The men will be sentenced on 2 December.
Anthony Marsh, 53, from Hatfield, Doncaster, who also used the names Tony Taylor and Tony Smith, had pleaded guilty to 34 offences including possessing and distributing indecent images of children, and sexual activity with a child.
Lee Davis, 39, from Conisbrough, who also used the name James Parkin, had pleaded guilty to 20 offences including rape, sexual activity with a child, and taking indecent photographs of a child.
Both men were also jointly charged with conspiracy to commit sexual activity with children, and both admitted this offence at the earlier court hearing in September.
The offences to which they pleaded guilty date back to 2005 and involved teenage boys from South Yorkshire, Humberside, the north east, north west and the midlands, aged between 13 and 17.
