Nightclub owners deny 'flashing' charge
The owners of a Scottish nightclub have pleaded not guilty to charges accusing them of encouraging revellers to expose themselves in return for free drinks.
Charles Geddes, 51, and his wife Lynette, 49, deny encouraging male and female customers at Oppos club in Forres, Morayshire, to flash in exchange for 10 minutes worth of free drinks.
A trial has at Elgin Sheriff Court has been set for 29 October.
Mr and Mrs Geddes are accused of permitting performances in the nightclub on 20 February which involved disorderly conduct.
It is alleged that a Forres man was encouraged to show his private parts and two women, including a 15-year-old, were encouraged to show their breasts.
The couple also face an alternative charge of conducting themselves in a shamelessly indecent manner by promoting these performances at the club.
The charge alleges that those who performed the acts were rewarded with free alcohol.
Lesley Duguid, a member of staff at the club, is charged with supplying alcohol to two 15-year-olds on 19 February.
