Sheffield police officer to stand trial on assault charge
A Sheffield police officer is preparing to stand trial next week after being accused of assault.
Liam Stewart, aged 33, has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm following an alleged incident in Hillsborough in August 2017, which resulted in an 18-year-old man needing treatment for facial injuries.
The police officer’s trial is to be held at Leeds Crown Court.
He entered a not guilty plea to the charge in December.
