A Welsh man accused of multiple indecent assaults on a male and females will face Crown Court proceedings next month.

The 32-year-old appeared at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Friday for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry (PE), the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.

Scott Wilfred Light, of Mary Street in Aberdare, is charged with two counts of indecent assault on a male, four counts of indecent assault on a female and three counts of possessing indecent photographs.

As these charges were read, it was heard that all of the offences are alleged to have occurred between March 17 and July 26, of 2006.

There are two female and one male alleged injured parties named in the charges.

Appearing via videolink from a Welsh court, Light made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence solicitor Suin Downey made no contrary submissions.

District Judge Bernie Kelly, satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, had the case listed for arraignment at Craigavon Crown Court on November 9.

Light was granted his own bail of £500, with conditions including; to have no contact with the alleged injured parties and to have no access to the internet.
