A BELFAST man is to stand trial accused of imprisoning and repeatedly raping a schoolboy.


Richard George McKimm is also alleged to have committed a catalogue of sexual assault offences against the same victim. The 44-year-old appeared before Belfast Magistrates Court yesterday for a hearing to establish if he has a case to answer. He is charged with 12 counts of rape, four counts of false imprisonment and four charges of causing a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity. Mr McKimm, of Edenvale Crescent in East Belfast, is further accused of seven sexual assault charges and two counts of having a knife with intent to commit rape. The alleged offences were committed on dates in 2010 and 2011. During preliminary enquiry proceedings he declined to give evidence or call witnesses at this stage. District Judge Fiona Bagnall backed prosecution submissions that he has a case to answer. She ordered Mr McKimm to be returned for trial at Belfast Crown Court on a date to be fixed. The accused was released on continuing bail until that case gets under way. As part of his release conditions Mr McKimm must not have any unsupervised access with children. He is also banned from contacting the alleged victim or any witnesses.
