A Cumbrian police detective charged with rape and indecent assault has had his case committed to crown court.
Nicholas Doherty, 41, from Barrow, appeared at Leamington Magistrates’ Court this morning.
Warwickshire police had charged Doherty with an alleged rape in Stratford-upon-Avon on February 27, 2012 and an indecent assault said to have happened in Cumbria in December 1999.
The court confirmed Doherty's case had been committed to Warwick Crown Court, to sit at Leamington Spa, on July 15.
Doherty was given conditional bail.
He was arrested at his home on November 27 last year by Warwickshire police.
Cumbria police said Doherty was suspended from duty when he was arrested.
