Former Scoutmaster Paul Cherrett enters 'No Plea'

I write further to my recent blog post in respect of Paul Cherrett a Former scoutmaster who is charged with a number of counts including 9 of indecent assault.

At his initial plea hearing Cherrett entered a 'No plea' response and will attend Bournemouth Crown Court on the 23 February 2017 for his Pre Trial Plea Hearing.

I will be in attendance as some of the alleged assaults took place at a Bournemouth Scout Camp, Butchers Coppice and Verisona Law already represent another individual who sadly was abused whilst attending the site, albeit by a different alleged perpetrator.
