Lawyer accused of sex offences

An Isle of Man advocate has been charged in connection with sexual offences, allegedly committed in Scotland around 20 years ago.

Forty-five-year-old Paul O’Neill was arrested on warrant in the Island on Monday and taken to Scotland by officers from Strathclyde Police.

He appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Wednesday charged with two counts of lewd, indecent and libidinous practices, alleged to have occurred between 1987 and 1991.

He was released on bail and will next appear in court on a date to be fixed.
