The CPS statement reads like he had no choice but to confess. It was the same with Chris Huhne who tried every trick to throw the case against him out of court but then pleaded guilty at the start of his trial.
Of course he had a choice - if he had contested the charges he had a chance of getting off even if the chance was slim. Due to his age and the nature of his crimes he is unlikely to benefit from the reduced sentence he might get with a plea.
