March 4, 2013

A Newry man has pleaded guilty to two counts of serious sexual assault, including penetration of a minor.  The charges brought relate to incidents dating from September 19th 2010 and involve two injured parties.

Thirty three year old Dennis Lancaster of Lisdrum Avenue entered the guilty pleas at his appearance before Newry Crown Court last Tuesday. The former juvenile boxing coach had previously denied all charges brought against him.

Lancaster was required to sign the sex offenders register before leaving court on bail last week.  He is scheduled to return for sentencing on 22nd March.
