Man denies schoolgirl dress Asbo breach in Northampton

A 60-year-old man from Northampton has denied breaching an Asbo which bans him from dressing up as a schoolgirl.

Peter Trigger, of Farndon Close, appeared before Northampton magistrates charged with breaching his Asbo three times.

Mr Trigger was given a five-year Asbo in December 2008 after waiting near a primary school dressed as a schoolgirl.

He is banned from wearing a skirt between 0830 and 1000 GMT and between 1445 and 1600 GMT on school days.

He is also banned from showing bare legs and behaving in a manner which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to others.

'Harassment allegation'

At Northampton Magistrates' Court Mr Trigger denied breaching the Asbo three times.

The court heard he allegedly caused harassment, alarm or distress on 16 December last year, contrary to the terms of the order.

He is also accused of wearing a skirt and having bare legs at 0905 GMT on 27 January this year, and again at 0907 GMT the following day - again breaching his Asbo.

He will stand trial at Northampton Magistrates' Court, the court heard. He was given unconditional bail until a further hearing.
