Before Ipswich Crown Court is Stanley Blatchford, of Bildeston Road, Combs, who has denied five offences of indecent assault on a male between 2001 and 2004.
Giving evidence during the trial Blatchford denied showing the boy pornographic magazines and sexually assaulting him.
“It never happened,” he said.
Katherine Davey, prosecuting, said that the boy was aged between 13-15 and Blatchford was in his early 50s.
