TYCOON TRIAL

MULTI-millionaire hedge fund manager Crispin Odey appeared in court yesterday accused of indecently assaulting a young banker.

Odey, 61, is said to have “engineered” her visit to his home in 1998, changed into a dressing gown and “launched himself” at her.

He put a hand inside her blouse to grab her breast, and a hand up her skirt, Westminster magistrates were told.

Odey, who denies indecent assault, is a vocal Brexit supporter said to be worth £800million.

Crispin Aylett QC, defending, asked for a quick trial by magistrates of the “immensely damaging” allegations.

The court denied a prosecution plea for jury trial at crown court and the case was adjourned to February.

Odey, wed since 1991 to fellow financier Nichola Pease, was granted bail.
