A North Somercotes man has been sent for a jury trial at Lincoln Crown Court, where he will face six charges of indecently assaulting a young girl in the 1990s.

Gavin Patrick Jackson, 34, of Conisholme Road in North Somercotes, appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (January 29) and indicated a plea of ‘not guilty’ to all six charges.

All of the charges relate to alleged offences that took place in Lincoln between 
1994 and 1997.

The alleged victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was under the
age of 14 when the alleged offences took place.

The court directed that Jackson must face 
trial by jury, and he is now due to appear at Lincoln Crown Court on 
Thursday February 12.

Jackson was granted unconditional bail.
