Court date fixed for Barrow trio on child abuse charges

THREE people at the centre of a probe into allegations of planning child abuse will appear in crown court next month.

Nikita Moore previously appeared at Preston Crown Court alongside husband and wife Kevin and Susan Barnett.

The trio all face charges relating to planning sexual offences against children under the age of 13.

Moore, of St Vincent Street, Barrow, is charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit serious sex offences against children under 13 between May and June this year.

The Barnetts, both 27, of Rawlinson Street, Barrow, are jointly charged with commissioning the rape of a girl under 13 on June 2.

The alleged offence is said to relate to text messages sent between the two.

Neither of the pair entered a plea when they appeared before Furness Magistrates’ Court on June 5.

Moore appeared 21 days later on June 26. The charges against her are also said to involve Kevin Barnett. Under UK guidelines each of the trio could face up to five years’ imprisonment should they plead guilty or be found guilty following a trial.

At the preliminary hearing at Preston on Monday, a court date was set for the trio of September 29 at Burnley Crown Court before Judge Graham Knowles.

If they plead not guilty, a five-day trial is set to take place in Preston Crown Court with Judge Knowles from March 2.

Preston Crown Court’s listings office said no plea will be taken until the September hearing, which will then dictate the case.
