The costs relate to incidents which allegedly befell on May 7 and 9 this 12 months in Bledon and Cleeve in Somerset.

Hunt, of Claverham, Somerset, was granted a case administration listening to and was represented by his solicitor David Fanson. He was launched on unconditional bail pending trial.

In earlier court hearings, it was revealed that feminine drivers at the wheel reported to the police at night time that they noticed an individual in a black bathing swimsuit.

Hunt beforehand denied leaping on the two women, though they had been carrying latex swimsuits.

Listening earlier Hunt spoke solely to again up his identification, answer and supply date.

The bald and bearded defendant wore a white shirt and brown pants and shook his head to disclaim the 2 costs.

Prosecutor Robert Yates advised the court file: “This is a case with quite a complicated history and it has gone to the Crown Court and has come back.”
