A PENSIONER from Stretton has appeared in court to face charges of engaging in sexual activity with a woman who suffers with learning difficulties.
Christopher Adams, of Hurst Drive, is accused of four counts of sexual activity with a mentally disordered female, and is further charged with causing or inciting sexual activity with a mentally disordered female.
The offences are alleged to have taken place between December 2010 and December 2012.
Adams, 71, gave no indication of pleas when he appeared before Burton Magistrates’ Court.
Andrew Bodger, prosecuting, said the case could only be considered by a judge and jury at Stafford Crown Court.
Magistrates agreed, and refused to accept jurisdiction over the case.
The pensioner is due to appear at the crown court on May 23.
He was granted unconditional bail.
