A 50-YEAR-OLD Fintona man was charged with indecently assaulting a female child when he appeared before Fermanagh Magistrate's Court yesterday.
Francis Heagney, from Craigavon Park, faces one charge which is alleged to have taken place between the June 30 and the September 7 this year.
A police constable told the court she believed she could connect Heagney to the charges, and said police had no objection to him being granted bail, subject to certain conditions.
As a result Heagney was released on his own bail of & pound;250. He was ordered to live at an address in Syonee Road, Fintona and to report twice weekly to Omagh Police Station; not to enter the town of Fintona unless to visit his doctor; not to enter any public house, or place which sells alcohol; and not to make contact with any of the witnesses or family members of the injured party in the case.
Heagney was released on bail to return to Omagh Magistrate's Court on October 10.
