Bail for Church of Ireland minister on sex charges
A Church of Ireland minister has appeared in court charged with 24 counts of taking indecent photographs of children.
Spencer Gilchrist (44), with an address at Church Road, Kells, Co Antrim, appeared briefly at Ballymena Magistrates Court sitting at Antrim Courthouse to hear the charges.
The minister, who has applied for legal aid, was released on his own bail of £500. Judge Perry said the case would be heard in the Crown Court, but a date has not yet been fixed.
