“This has been a long and protracted investigation since 2010 involving over 100 victims,” said Down Area Commander CI Deirdre Bones.  “This guilty plea by both defendants is reflective of the exhaustive and painstaking investigation carried out by DI Harris, DS Eakin and their team and I congratulate them on their efforts.
“We can now bring and end to the investigation and hopefully some closure for the victims involved.”
Sentencing in the case is expected later in the year.
