A man accused of historic sex offences with a boy under the age of 14 has had his case committed to the crown court.
Geraldo Biagio Tucciarone is accused of indecently assaulting a boy under 14 on seven occasions between February 25, 1984, and February 24, 1992.
The 52-year-old, of HM Prison Bure, in Norwich, also allegedly committed two acts of gross indecency with the boy during the same period.
The nine offences are said to have occurred in Brandon, Mildenhall, Earl Shilton and Hinkley.
Yesterday, Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court committed Tucciarone’s case to Ipswich Crown Court on April 1.
