In court over sex charges

A SOUTH Cave man who is facing child abuse charges stretching back to the 1980s is due to appear in court again next week.

Denis William Carr of Nunnery Walk has been hit with 13 charges between 1987 to 1999.

The 50-year-old is accused of eight counts of gross indecency and five charges of indecent assault. Most of the charges are against girls who were under the age of either 14 or 16 and allegedly occurred in villages near to his home.

He is expected at Beverley Magistrates’ Court on 19 September, where the case is expected to be committed to crown court.

He has been ordered to stay away from the alleged victims and not have unsupervised contact with children under the age of 16.
