British folk veteran Roy Harper has been ordered to return to court on 2 December (13) after attending a brief hearing on historic child sex offences on Monday (18Nov13). The singer/songwriter was recently charged with nine counts relating to allegations dating back to 1975 and 1977, when he is accused of engaging in an unlawful sexual relationship with a teenage girl. He did not enter a plea during his four-minute hearing at Hereford Magistrates' Court on Monday, but his case has now been formally handed to officials at Worcester Crown Court in England, where he must appear next month (Dec13).
