Braddan man denies child sex offences

Committal proceedings due in August

A Braddan man has been charged with committing sexual offences against children.

Nineteen-year-old Daniel Michael John Oliphant appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse.

He pleaded not guilty to grooming 15-year-old girls on two occasions between October last year and February this year.

Mr Oliphant also denies two counts of indecent assault on a child last October and November.

He hasn’t yet entered pleas to two charges each of inciting a child to commit gross indecency and committing gross indecency with a child.

Mr Oliphant was bailed until he appears for committal proceedings to the Court of General Gaol Delivery on 7 August.
