He was charged with seven charges of sexual assault on a female, two charges of indecent assault on a male, two charges of attempted indecent assault on a female, two counts of attempted sexual assault, one count of indecent assault on a female, a charge of incitement to commit an act of gross indecency and engaging in a sex act in the presence of a child.
