A Welshpool teenager appeared in Mold Crown Court yesterday accused of raping an underage girl.

Kieran Mark Goodwin, 18, of Little Henfaes Drive, Welshpool, made a one minute appearance in the dock and was remanded in custody the Daily Post reports.

He faced six charges, including one of raping the girl, aged under 16 in October 2016, having under age sex and engaging in other sexual activity with her.

A plea and case management hearing had been due to be held where he was expected to enter pleas. But prosecuting barrister John Philpotts said that Goodwin faced a number of additional charges which were not due before the crown court until December 1.

Judge Niclas Parry agreed to a joint application by Mr Philpotts and defending barrister Simon Mills that he should not enter pleas today and for the present case to be adjourned so that all matters could be tied up.

Goodwin said nothing during the hearing apart from confirming his identity.
