[A] WOMAN who denies that she allegedly “assisted an offender” is to stand trial in front of a jury later this year.
Rianna Hull, 26, faced two charges when she appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (FRI).
One charge alleges “assisting an offender” while making a representation to police on May 9.
The second alleges that Hull did an act “tending and intended to pervert the course of justice” – the alleged providing of a “false” statement to police – two days earlier.
Hull entered not guilty pleas to both charges during a short hearing before Recorder Kevin Grice.
Her trial is due to start at the crown court on October 8.
In the meantime Hull, of Springkell, Aspatria, was granted conditional bail by Recorder Grice.
