The convicted pedophile known as “Swirl Face” has pleaded guilty to five charges.
Christopher Neil served time in Thailand several years ago for a string of sexual offenses against children.
He was arrested anew when he flew back to Canada in 2012 and was placed on several strict conditions.
The RCMP and Vancouver police later announced 10 fresh charges against him.
Six involved sexual touching and producing child porn in Cambodia.
The others related to accessing and possessing child porn here in the Lower Mainland.
Neil has now pleaded guilty to five of the charges and has a court date in February.
He became known as ‘Swirl Face’ because police had come across pictures of child abuse in the initial overseas investigation, but the man’s face was obscured by a swirl.
