Man charged with sex offences
A 49-year-old man from Londonderry will go on trial later this month charged with a series of sex offences.
The man, who cannot be named, appeared at the Crown Court yesterday where he faced three charges of indecent assault and two of gross indecency against a female child.
The charges were alleged to have occurred between January 1, 1979 and December 31, 1980.
When the charges were put to him the defendant pleaded not guilty. The court was told that the trial is expected to last four to five days.
