A convicted sex offender living in Powys who didn't tell police that he was staying on a Welsh coast caravan park and a residential street in Wrexham for more than seven nights will be sentenced by a judge at the crown court.

Richard Roe, 67, who lives between Pen-y-bont and Llansilin, pleaded guilty to three counts of failing to comply with the notification requirements of the sex offenders register when he appeared at Mold Crown Court on Thursday, May 16.

Roe accepted that he failed to register with Dyfed-Powys Police that he was staying at two addresses for more than seven nights during a 12-month period.


The first was at Yale Park, Wrexham between January and August 2022, and the second address was at Moelfre View Caravan Park in Talybont near Barmouth, from March 5 to May 1, 2022.

He also pleaded guilty to setting up a HSBC bank account on November 27, 2021 without telling police within three days.

Roe's guilty pleas meant that the trial fixed for July 3 will no longer go ahead.

His Honour Judge Rhys Rowlands told Roe that he "mustn't read into that" after explaining that he will order a full pre-sentence report before his sentencing hearing on June 20.
