Famed businessman Sir Ronald Brierley pleads guilty to possessing child abuse material.
A millionaire businessman who helped turn Woolworths into an iconic juggernaut has admitted to a vile crime involving children.
Millionaire businessman Sir Ronald Alfred Brierley has pleaded guilty in court to possessing graphic sexual images and videos of young children.
The elderly knight’s lawyer Penny Musgrave asked that he not be required to stand in the Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday “due to his age” as she entered guilty pleas to three counts of possessing child abuse material.
An additional 14 counts of the same charge laid upon the famed corporate raider were withdrawn and he has been committed to the District Court for sentence.
The offence carries a maximum jail term of 10 years prison.
He won't make the 10 years. He'll be dead before then.
