Man (51) accused of ‘attempted sexual communication with child’ has case further adjourned

Court

A 51-year-old man who was in court on Monday charged with ‘attempted sexual communication with a child’ has had his case further adjourned to March 9.

Richard Nevin, of Ballyclogh Road, Bushmills, is accused of one charge that ‘on dates between 27/09/2019 and 03/10/2019, being a person aged 18 years or over, for the purpose of obtaining sexual gratification, intentionally attempted to communicate with a person under 16 years, the communication being sexual or intended to encourage the said person to make a communication that was sexual, and you did not reasonably believe that the victim was 16 years or over’.

No other details regarding the allegation were given to the court.

The defendant has yet to indicate a guilty or not guilty plea.

The defendant was released on continuing bail.

A previous court heard that as part of his bail he is to have no contact with any person under the age of 16 unless approved by social services.
