A monk who taught at a Roman Catholic school in Somerset has pleaded not guilty to child sex offences.
Richard White, 65, denied one count of indecently assaulting a boy under 14 and four counts of indecency against a child at Taunton Crown Court.
The offences are alleged to have happened in the late 1980s at Downside School in Stratton-on-the-Fosse.
The trial date for White, of Hyde, Fordingbridge, Hampshire, has yet to be set.
