Man accused of ‘sexual touching’


A Portadown man has been returned for trial to Craigavon Crown Court on a charge of intentionally sexually touching a female.

Richard Sproule (35), Tullyroan Drive, appeared last Friday at a preliminary enquiry.

The charge against him alleges that on October 26 last year he intentionally touched a female, the circumstances being that the touching was sexual and she had not consented.

Sproule was remanded on his own bail of £500 to appear for arraignment at Craigavon Crown Court on May 19.

He is to have no contact with the injured party or any witnesses.
