Actor To Face Trial On Wimbledon Sex Charges

Teenager will be appearing at Crown court

A teenage TV actor accused of raping a 14-year-old boy at New Wimbledon Theatre will face a Crown court trial.

The 17-year-old allegedly forced the boy to perform a sex act in the theatre during a three-month campaign of sexual abuse.

The TV actor, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, is also charged with offences in the changing rooms of a London stage school and in nearby public toilets.

The trial will take place next year.
