The trial of an Essex man accused of three alleged sex offences will take place in June.

Before Ipswich Crown Court on Friday January 4 for a plea and trial preparation hearing was Charlie Catchpole, of West Avenue, Mayland.

Catchpole has denied attempting to have sexual activity with a mentally disordered patient on October 8 last year.

He has also denied sexually assaulting a woman in May last year by putting his hands on her breasts over her clothing, and a similar charge in respect of another woman in August last year.

Catchpole’s trial, which is expected to last around five days, will get underway on June 24.
