(CNS): Errington Webster (54) has denied four counts of gross indecency on a 13-year-old girl and will now face trial in the New Year. Webster is accused of sexually assaulting the girl in the district of Bodden Town, where he is normally resident and where he stood as an independent candidate in the 2013 General Election. The four separate alleged assaults, in which Webster is accused of touching and sucking the girl’s genitals and breasts, as well asking her to “spit on his penis and masturbate it”, allegedly took place between April and June of this year.

As the indictment was read to him in Grand Court Friday, Webster, who is represented by local defence attorney Steve McField, bellowed his not guilty pleas before the jury. The trial, which is expected to last two weeks, was confirmed for 16 January. The retired firefighter was bailed to return to North Side, where he is currently under a strict curfew at a family member’s home after he was banned from the district of Bodden Town.

Webster was arrested this summer in connection with allegations of sexual assault following the circulation on social media of an explicit video appearing to show him engaging in an indecent act with an underage girl in his car.
