West Cumbria man denies attempted child incitement charge

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] MAN accused of trying to incite a child to undress while using a webcam will go on trial later this year.

Andrew David Ross Snell faced one charge when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (WED).

Snell, 42, pleaded not guilty to allegedly attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.

This charge alleges that he tried to engage a child aged under 16 with a pseudonym to “undress whilst on a webcam” on May 12 in 2015.

Snell, of Fern Bank Lane, Low Seaton, Workington, was told he would go on trial before a jury at the crown court. It is estimated this hearing, due to start on July 11, will last around one day.

An application for bail was made on the defendant’s behalf by his barrister Lucy Wright.

This was refused by Judge James Adkin, who remanded Snell in custody.
