An Essex man who sexually assaulted a woman has been warned he could be jailed when he is sentenced next month.

Before Ipswich Crown Court today was Luke Reeves, 27, of Keyes Way, Braintree, who pleaded guilty to an offence of assaulting a woman by digital penetration on February 21 last year.

Judge Martyn Levett adjourned sentence until October 9 for a pre-sentence report to be prepared on Reeves by the probation service.

He warned Reeves that the offence he had admitted was serious and warned him he could be jailed.

“Please do not come ill-prepared for a prison sentence,” said the judge.
