Man with County Antrim address is accused of indecent assaults

A 56-year-old man with a Cushendall address faces eleven charges including eight of indecent assault.

Martin McKillop, with an address listed as Coast Road, is also accused of one charge of gross indecency with or towards a child; one charge of attempting to assault a female and one charge of assaulting a female occasioning her actual bodily harm.

The charges relate to dates 'unknown' between 1995 and 2010.

The defendant appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court via video link from his solicitor's office.

During a Preliminary Enquiry - the legal step to send a case to the Crown Court - a prosecutor submitted there was a case to answer and the defence solicitor had no contrary submissions.

District Judge Nigel Broderick released the defendant on bail of £500 and sent the case to Antrim Crown Court on December 10 this year.
