Former television crime reporter Ron Bencze will be sentenced on Aug. 28 after pleading guilty Thursday to sexually assaulting a Surrey boy.
"I'm not asking for forgiveness," he told Judge Robin Baird, through his lawyer Richard Peck. "I will work hard to redeem myself and try to regain the trust I have squandered."
Bencze, 46, of Surrey, was originally charged with nine sexual offences related to three children. On Thursday he pleaded guilty in Surrey provincial court to one count of sexual assault involving a boy who is now 14.
