A man accused of sexually assaulting five boys from the ages of 12 to 17 in Bridlington and Scarborough has appeared at Hull Crown Court for the first time.
Alan Fisher, 50, of Manhamhill, Eastfield, Scarborough, is accused of inviting young boys back to his flat for sex.
He appeared at Hull Crown Court in custody on Thursday April 11 facing 18 charges.
Crown barrister Mark Kendall said: “The allegation is the defendant befriended young men aged around the age of 14 and invited them back to his flat.”
He said the offences involved sex acts. Fisher is facing nine charges of indecent assault, six charges of gross indecency, two charges of rape and one charge of inciting a child into sexual activity.
Fisher, who is balding and wore a green jacket, left the talking to his barrister Patricia Docherty who said he was not entering pleas at this stage, but there would be a trial.
Judge Michael Mettyear adjourned the case for a plea and direction hearing at Hull Crown Court on June 28. There was no application for bail and Mr Fisher was remanded in custody.
