Man faces trial on sex charges

Have your say

A MAN accused of carrying out a string of sex attacks will have his case heard at crown court.

Darren White was at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court yesterday charged with six counts of sexual touching.

The 39-year-old is alleged to have carried out the assaults in Sunderland between May 2009 and February this year.

One of the charges is in relation to a 15-year-old girl.

Magistrates sent the case to Newcastle Crown Court, where White, of Hylton Lane, Sunderland, will appear on May 28.

He was released on conditional bail until then.
