A MOTHER and her son will face a trial in June over an allegation that they conspired together to pervert the course of justice.
Pamela Shoulder, 46, of Pounteys Close, Middleton-St-George, near Darlington, and her son Ian Pritchard deny the offence.
It is said to have been committed between February 2 2012 and May 1 2012.
The pair both appeared at Teesside Crown Court, Mrs Shoulder in person and 20-year-old Pritchard via a video link to Aylesbury Prison where he is serving a jail sentence for sex offences.
The case was adjourned by the Recorder of Middlesbrough, Judge Simon Bourne-Arton and a trial is due to take place on June 2.
