NI hypnotist admits sex offences
A former stage hypnotist from Londonderry who performed across the UK has admitted indecently assaulting three women.

Richard Kenneth Tilley of Brentwood Park in Foyle Springs, faces seven charges between May 2003 and June 2004.

Mr Tilley, 66, who performed under the name Richard Glenn, was released on bail for pre-sentence reports.

He was ordered to sign the sex offenders register and warned the offences carried a jail term.

He is due to appear in court again at the end of October.

According to his website, Richard Glenn is a professional clinical hypnotist who, for more than 30 years, has used hypnotherapy and other therapies to help with such problems as smoking and weight loss.

He claims to run the longest established full time professional hypnotherapy centre in Northern Ireland.
