THE FORMER leader of Worcestershire County Council has admitted indecent assault in court today.
Dr George Lord admitted three counts of indecent assault which occurred between 1977 and 1979 on a girl aged between 14 and 15.
Lord appeared at Birmingham Crown Court for a pre-trial review on the charges but changed his plea to guilty.
Judge Nigel Godsmark adjourned the case for a pre-sentence report to assess the risk Lord poses to women.
He was remanded in custody until the next hearing on April 3 or 4.
