A not guilty plea was indicated in the case of a man in his mid-seventies who appeared at Wexford District Court on January 12 charged with sexual assault.

The charges dated back to offences allegedly committed more than ten years ago.

In the light of the guilty plea, Judge Gerard Haughton confirmed that the DPP wanted the case dealt with in the Circuit Court.

Accordingly, he put the matter back to February 16 to allow preparation of a book of evidence.
