84-year-old Lincoln man denies historic sex offences

A pensioner is to face trial after he denied historic sex charges when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court on Friday, June 12.

Arthur Baddiley, 84, of Conway Drive in North Hykeham, pleaded not guilty to eight charges of indecent assault on a young girl.

He also denied five charges of gross indecency with a boy under the aged of 14.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between 1986 and 1994 at addresses in Cornwall and Lincolnshire.

Judge John Pini QC adjourned the hearing for trial on a date to be fixed and Baddiley was granted conditional bail.
