A Pembrokeshire man will appear at Swansea Crown Court next month, to face charges of attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child.

Thirty-eight-year-old Ashley Reese, of Wiseman’s Bridge, appeared at Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Tuesday (February 6) for a hearing to face three charges where he is alleged to have intentionally attempted to communicate with a person under the age of 16 for the purpose of obtaining sexual gratification.

The communications are alleged to have taken place between the dates of May and December of 2021.

The case was transferred to Swansea Crown Court, where the next hearing, scheduled for March 8 is expected to involve a Plea and Trial Preparation hearing.

The defendant was granted unconditional bail.
