Dave Lee Travis Denies Fresh Sex Charges
DJ Dave Lee Travis has denied two new sex charges against him.
In a five-minute hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London he only spoke to confirm his name, age and address.
The 68-year-old appeared under his real name David Patrick Griffin and faces two allegations of indecent assault.
They relate to a woman who says she was assaulted between January 1992 and December 1993, she was over the age of 16 at the time.
In court his lawyer Martin Bale indicated his client would plead not guilty to the new charges.
The two allegations have been added to 12 others he faces of indecent or sexual assault that span the last three decades.
His next court appearance will be on October 21st and a trial is scheduled to take place next March.
The 68 year old DJ has consistently denied any wrongdoing since he was first arrested at his home near Leighton Buzzard in November 2012.
His arrest was part of Operation Yewtree which investigated the Jimmy Savile scandal but the allegations faced by Dave Lee Travis are not linked in any way to his disgraced former BBC colleague.
During a long career in broadcasting the DJ was known as DLT and hosted the BBC Radio One breakfast show between 1978 and 1980.
Recently he had been working for the Magic Network of radio stations but has been taken off-air pending the outcome of court proceedings.
