A Jersey politician charged with grave and criminal assault has been granted on bail by the Magistrate's Court.

Senator Alan Breckon, 59, of St Brelade is alleged to have assaulted Suzette Hase on the 31 March 2012 at his home.

Miss Haze, a former senatorial candidate, used to work with Senator Breckon at the Jersey consumer council where he was chairman.

His next court appearance is in two weeks when his case will be committed to the Royal Court.
