Byrne, who ran the Young Person's Advisory Service, previously worked with children as young as 10.But hang on, if his tastes seem to have run only to adult women (albeit those tied up and bleeding, in the main), where's the 'Won't someone think of the children!' angle?
Byrne also admitted four charges of making indecent images of children.It's amazing he had time for any charity work, isn't it?
Wearing plain trousers and a checked shirt, Byrne showed no emotion as he admitted carrying out the vicious assaults.
At an earlier hearing in January, Byrne admitted six charges of possessing obscene images of children.
Those charges represented a total of nearly 9,000 images.
He had also admitted a further count of committing a lewd and obscene act on a Merseyrail train while photographing young girls.
