Three deny harrasing housing association chief
Three men have denied harassing the chief executive of Liverpool Mutual Homes, magistrates heard today.
The men entered not guilty pleas to the harassment of Steve Coffey, chief executive of the 15,000-home stock transfer housing association.
David Gardiner, 42, of Eldersfield Road, Sidney Graves, 54, of Beacon Lane, and Peter Orr, 57, of Oreilly Court - all in Liverpool - entered the pleas at Liverpool Magistrates Court this morning.
The men also faced charges that did not relate to Mr Coffey.
Mr Orr pleaded not guilty to causing harassment, alarm or distress to two other people by using threatening words or behaviour. Mr Graves pleaded not guilty to assault by beating.
Mr Gardiner entered not guilty pleas to common assault and harassment.
The case was adjourned until 21 August when there will be a case management hearing. The three men were granted conditional bail.
