A 74-year-old Laurelvale man has been returned for trial to Craigavon Crown Court on a series of charges which include buggery of a boy under the age of 16.

Samuel Joseph Abraham, Main Street, Laurelvale, appeared today (Friday) at a preliminary enquiry in Craigavon Courthouse.

He faces five offences alleging that he committed an act of gross indecency towards a child and five charges of indecent assault on a male.

Abraham is also accused that he incited a child to commit an act of gross indecency and he committed buggery with a boy under the age of 16.

The offences are alleged to have happened between June 1, 1978, and January 1, 1979.

Abraham was remanded on his own bail of £500 to appear for arraignment at Craigavon Crown Court on September 6.

A defence certificate for two counsel was granted.
