A pensioner has denied sexually abusing two boys almost 50 years ago.Brendan O’Donnell, (76), of Ardglen Park, denied two charges of indecently assaulting the boys between September 7, 1961 and December 31, 1964.
The alleged injured parties were under 14. Derry Crown Court heard the trial has been listed for September 23. However, that date was ‘optimistic’ as a prosecution witness was unavailable and a number of other applications had to be made.
The accused was released on bail and the case will be reviewed on September 5.
