A local 33-year-old man has admitted to luring a child over the Internet. Douglas Somerton of St. John’s pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared in court yesterday. He was charged in December after police investigated a complaint that a child in Head of Bay d’Espoir was lured over the Internet. Somerton was living in the community at the time. The police said under his bail conditions, Somerton was not allowed in the area except for court appearances. Somerton is due back in court in Head of Bay d’Espoir for a sentencing hearing May 26.
