Two Men Charged With Sexual Abuse at Haut de la Garenne Bailed

Gordon Wateridge pleaded not guilty to 17 counts involving five alleged victims. The assaults occurred between 1970 and 1974 at the Haut de la Garenne.

A not guilty plea was entered for 15 charges of indecent assault on girls under 16, one count of incitement to indecent assault on a girl under 16 and one count of assault on a boy aged between 12 and 13.

His case has been adjourned to November 25 for directions. A trial expected on April 20, 2009.

Michael Aubin is charged with six counts of indecent assault on boys, two counts of sodomy and two counts of procuring an act of gross indecency.

The charges are alleged to have taken place between February 1977 and July 1978 and involve five different children.

Aubin reserved his plea. The case has been adjourned to November 26 for a pretrial review.

Both men were bailed after their court appearances today.
