In a fifteen minute hearing, no pleas were entered by Duberry before his case was committed to the crown court, as magistrates' courts do not have the sufficient powers to hear a rape case.

The defendant was then remanded in custody until November 21, when he will appear at Ipswich Crown Court, Civic Drive, for a preliminary hearing.
