Neither Mr Sun or Miss Fo gave any indication of a plea at this stage of proceedings to the charge of intentionally controlling the activities of another person in relation to her prostitution in the expectation of making a gain.

The case was committed to Derby Crown Court where it was considered on Wednesday, January 4.

Judge Jonathan Bennett adjourned the crown court case for a further plea and trial preparation hearing on January 18 and he fixed an expected trial date for April 10 at Derby Crown Court.
