US man in Newry court on charges of abusing child

By Staff Reporter

A man with an address in the United States has appeared in court in Northern Ireland accused of raping a child.

John Dunn (50), who is from South Carolina but was bailed to an address in Dundonald, is further accused of intentionally inciting the child to engage in sexual activity.

The offences are alleged to have occurred on a date between March 13, 2014 and March 17, 2015.

At Newry Magistrates Court Dunn was remanded on £500 bail and ordered to have no contact with the victim or her family, nor is he to have any unsupervised contact with anyone aged under 16 without the approval of social services.

He was also ordered to report with police three times per week and surrender his passport, visa and travel documents.

Dunn has also been banned from entering Co Down entirely, except for court appearances, and when doing so he must travel directly there and back via the A1.

The case is due back in court next month.
