The trial of Nottinghamshire councillor Jason Zadrozny, accused of sex offences, is ready to start next month.

The 36-year-old, who sits on both Ashfield District and Nottinghamshire County councils, faces 24 charges, including those of indecent assault and gross indecency involving a teenage boy.

He pleaded not guilty to all the allegations last April.

Zadrozny denies four allegations of a sexual nature when the alleged victim was 13 years old.

Four further charges relate to Zadrozny allegedly indecently assaulting the boy by getting him to perform a sexual act.

Four charges allege gross indecency with the boy, while 12 counts cite sexual activity with him.

A pre-trial review took place at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday, September 11, before Judge Rosalind Coe QC, where she was updated on the progress of the case.

Zadrozny was represented in court by barrister Justin Wigoder, while the prosecution was represented by Vanessa Marshall.

The judge was told the case was ready for trial.

Zadrozny, of Sutton Road, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, who was not at the brief hearing, is due to have a two-week trial at the court, starting on October 30.
