Gordon Wateridge appeared in magistrates’ court and has been charge with 16 counts of indecent assault as well as four counts of firearms charges. The weapons were found at his house when he was arrested.
The three initial charges against him have been withdrawn and replaced by the 16 new charges. Those charges include assault against four girls and one boy during the 1970s.
Wateridge again, has not entered a plea and remains on conditional bail.
The case has been referred to the Royal Court. No date has been set.
