A MAN who denies child neglect will be tried at Sheffield Crown Court next month.
The 21-year-old, who cannot be named due to a court-imposed reporting restriction put in place to protect the underage youngster, appeared at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court this week to issue a not guilty plea.
The man, from Goldthorpe, is alleged to have had responsibility for the child between August 13 and August 16 last year and is charged with assaulting, ill-treating, neglecting and abandoning the child.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
