FOUR PEO­PLE who face charges in con­nec­tion with a chil­dren’s sum­mer camp will be tried to­gether later this month.

Ben Lewis, 25, from Lulling­ton Garth, Bore­ham­wood, the co-founder of LL Camps in Bushey, ap­peared at St Albans Mag­is­trates’ Court this week ac­cused of two charges of per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice and one charge of child ne­glect.

He had ear­lier been charged with three counts of pos­sess­ing in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren.

LL Camps co-founder Tal Landsman, 25, of Cram­bus Court, Ad­mi­ral Drive, Steve­nage , was ac­cused of child ne­glect and con­spir­acy to per­vert the course of jus­tice.

The charges were not put to the de­fen­dants.

Shahida Parveen, of the Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice, told the court that there was a link be­tween the in­de­cent im­age charges faced by Ben Lewis and the later charges faced by the four de­fen­dants. She said it made sense for all charges to be heard at the same time.

The mag­is­trates agreed and the case will be heard at St Albans Crown Court on Oc­to­ber 23. Ben Lewis was re­manded in cus­tody. The other three de­fen­dants were bailed.
