Indecency charges from to 1986 to 1995 go before Crown Court

A FIFTY-four-year-old man has appeared before magistrates at Skegness accused of six charges of indecently assaulting a girl under the age of 14 and three of having responsibility for children and causing or procuring them to be assaulted, ill treated, neglected or exposed in a manner likely to cause them unnecessary suffering.

All the allegations relate to Mablethorpe and in a period between June 1986 and December 31 1995.

The indecent assault allegations relate to a single girl and the other allegations to three children, one of them the same as in the indecency allegations.

Graham Charles Winterton, now living at Castlemain Avenue, Bournemouth, made no plea and the cases were adjourned for committal on August 28 to Crown Court for trial.
