Former Haut de la Garenne Warden Appeared Before Jersey Magistrates Today

Gordon Wateridge appeared before magistrates earlier today. This is the second time Wateridge has come before the magistrates. He faces three counts of sexual abuse of three girls in the 1960s and 1970s.

76 year-old Wateridge has yet to enter a plea and is scheduled to appear again, on June 9th.

Wateridge was arrested due to allegations made during the on-going abuse investigation in Jersey.

Wateridge was the first of two persons arrested so far. More arrests are expected.
