A SOUTH Cumbria man who denies harassing and intimidating a woman will go on trial later this year.
Two charges were put to Tomas Bryan Wilkinson, 26, when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today (THURS).
He pleaded not guilty to an allegation that he put Imogen Macro in fear of violence by harassment, during a period between 1st August and 17th October last year.
Wilkinson also denied a charge of intimidation. This alleges that he telephoned the same female and made threats, on 9th January this year, knowing she was a witness in criminal proceedings.
A timetable for the case was outlined in court by the respective lawyers in the case – Beccy McGregor for the prosecution and Kim Whittlestone, defending.
Wilkinson, of Church Road, Allithwaite, near Grange-over-Sands, was told by Judge Peter Davies his trial would get under way at the crown court on 2nd May. It is estimated this will last two to three days.
In the meantime Wilkinson was remanded in custody by Judge Davies.
