Jersey: Third suspect appears in court

The third man to be charged in the Jersey child abuse investigation has appeared in court.

Michael Aubin, 45, was charged with one count of sodomy against a boy and two counts of indecent assault against two other boys between 1977 and 1980.

The alleged offences were related to the Haut de la Garenne children’s home at the centre of the police investigation.

Aubin, who was born in Jersey and lives in Southampton, was arrested in the UK last Thursday. He was remanded into custody until June 30 after appearing in court on Monday.

Two other men have been charged in relation to the police investigation, which is looking at allegations of historical abuse at the former Haut de la Garenne children’s home and other institutions.

Gordon Wateridge, 76, has been charged with three alleged offences of historic indecent assaults on girls under 16 committed between 1969 and 1979 at Haut de la Garenne. He is also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. He is due to appear in court again on 9 June and 7 July.

Claude James Donnelly, 68, has been charged of raping and sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl between 1971 and 1974 and is due again in court on 25 June. Police said the charges did not relate to Haut de la Garenne.
