Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Tuesday, June 5, how Robin Scott, 53, of Wycar, Bedale, in North Yorkshire, allegedly committed offences in Glossop.

Scott has been charged with ten sex offences involving a teenage boy aged under 16, from between February, last year, and June, 2018, as well as with an offence of meeting the same youngster following grooming between January, 2017, and June, 2018.
