War­den faces sex case trial

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

A PRISON of­fi­cer is to be tried over al­legedly in­cit­ing or hav­ing sex with 12 women con­victs.

David Whit­field pleaded not guilty at Durham crown court to mis­con­duct in pub­lic of­fice.

The 34-year-old, of South Shields, South Ty­ne­side, worked at Low New­ton women’s max­i­mum-se­cu­rity jail, County Durham.

The judge said the 12 women would be “wit­nesses”, not com­plainants. Whit­field was granted bail.
