A TEENAGER accused of secretly filming underneath the skirts of two women is to contest the allegations against him later this year, Fermanagh Youth Court has heard.

The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is charged with five counts of committing an act outraging public decency.

He is alleged to have committed acts of a “lewd, obscene and disgusting nature” by making a covert video recording underneath a skirt on dates between February 1, 2015 and September 13, 2016.

There are two alleged victims in the case.

Although the teenager did not appear in court for the brief hearing yesterday (Wednesday), both of his alleged victims were present.

Defending solicitor, Tommy Owens, representing the youth, made a application to fix a date for a contested hearing on August 14, with a review hearing prior to that on July 10.

However, the prosecutor told the court that August 14 was not a suitable date for a contest, as one of the witnesses was unable to attend.

“This is a witness who wishes to attend,” the prosecutor added.

After a short discussion between the lawyers, it was agreed that September 11 would be a suitable date for the contest.

District judge, Benita Boyd, adjourned the case until July 10 for a review hearing, followed by the contest in  September.
