OAP on sex charge

Court case
Court case

A PENSIONER charged with sexual assault has had his case adjourned.

The defence team for Robert Griggs was successful in its application to Doncaster Crown Court for his case to be postponed pending a medical report.

The 75-year-old of Manor Road, Askern, was granted conditional bail until February 13.

The adjournment is so a doctor can carry out an assessment of the mental state of the defendant and whether he his mentally sound enough to stand trial in connection with the allegations.

As part of his bail conditions Griggs has been ordered not to make contact with the alleged victim in the case, which will be heard at Doncaster Crown Court.
