LL Camps four set for trial in May following hearing
THE TRIAL of four people charged with offences in connection with the closure of the LL Camps children camp is due to take place next May.
The defendants are expected to enter pleas at an initial hearing in January.
The children’s summer camp in Hertfordshire — which was popular with Jewish families — was shut down in August after its director, Ben Lewis, was charged.
He faces 10 charges relating to the possession of indecent images of children, perverting the course of jus- tice, child neglect, and attempting to observe another person taking part in a private act without consent for sexual gratification.
Mr Lewis’s father, Larry Lewis, 55, has been charged with perverting the course of justice. Mr Lewis’s former business partner Tal Landsman, a former JFS student, has been accused of child neglect and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
Mr Landsman’s mother, Adrianne Landsman,56,of Edgware,wascharged with one count of child neglect.
The four appeared at St Albans Crown Court in Hertfordshire last Friday.
