[A] MAN whose dog allegedly bit a teenager in Workington will stand trial later this year.
James Cochrane, 52, denied one charge when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.
Cochrane pleaded not guilty to being the owner of a German Shepherd which allegedly caused injury to Terry Irving while dangerously out of control in a public place.
This follows an incident which is said to have taken place at Fountains Avenue, Workington, on 16th October last year.
Cochrane, of Main Street, Cleator, spoke only to confirm his identity and deny the allegation during a brief hearing in front of Judge Peter Hughes QC.
He was remanded on unconditional bail by the judge, and is due to go on trial at the crown court in the week of 15th August.
