A GREENOCK has been charged with inviting a woman whom he believed was 14 to have sex with him at his home.
Stuart Steele, 35, is accused of making sexually explicit remarks to the female — who is aged 25 — on the internet and with soliciting her to commit sexual acts.
Prosecutors say Steele, of the east end, committed the alleged offence between August 27 and November 3 last year.
He has maintained a plea of not guilty through lawyer Derek Buchanan at the town’s sheriff court.
The case is due to call again on February 19.
