A 24-year-old man accused of having sex with his teenage niece and making child pornography pleaded guilty Thursday to a string of sex offences involving a minor.

The man, who can not be named to protect the identity of the victim, appeared in provincial court Thursday and entered guilty pleas to several sex charges, including sexual assault, sexual contact with a child, distributing child pornography, making/printing child pornography and luring a child.

According to highlights read from the agreed statement of facts, the offences occurred on three separate occasions in August 2013.

The uncle engaged in anal intercourse and other sexual acts with his then 13-year-old niece. On one occasion he took a video. Sexually explicit text messages were also exchanged between the pair.

During the investigation, police found 13 child pornography images on the man’s computer. Six images were also found on his cellphone.

The matter will return to court Jan. 27 for sentencing and is expected to take a full day.
