I have fully admitted my guilt in this case from the moment police came to my home and I have fully co-operated with the authorities since my arrest. I would like to thank my solicitor Phil Smith.
I apologise to everyone for my wrongdoing, particularly the children involved. I am now receiving the treatment which I need. I apologise to the residents of Kingston, my colleagues, friends and especially to my family for letting them down so badly.
