Council licensing officer on assault charge

A council licensing officer has appeared in court following an incident in which a woman was hit by a car.

Ken Sharples, 53, who works in licensing enforcement and as a legal officer for Allerdale council, has been charged with assault, dangerous driving and inflicting grievous bodily harm.

It is alleged that Sharples, of Chaucer Road, Workington, assaulted Kai Diesveld by beating him, drove a Volvo dangerously in the Jackson Street and Milburn Croft area of Seaton and inflicted wounding or grievous bodily harm without intent on Andrea Sharp.

Sharples entered no plea when he appeared at West Cumbria Magistrates’ Court.

Chairman of the bench Ian Killip declined jurisdiction after hearing from prosecutor William Magill.

The defendant was bailed to appear at crown court on Monday, June 3 for a plea and case management hearing.

The bail conditions included an order that he does not contact directly or indirectly Kai Diesveld or Andrea Sharp. The offences are alleged to have happened on December 15.
