A woman accused of sexually abusing two children almost 20 years ago is to stand trial.
Debbie Watson, 37, allegedly attacked the boy, aged seven, and nine-year-old girl at an address in Rosyth, Fife between April 1, 1993 and October 31, 1994.
One charge relates to the boy, who she is alleged to have used lewd, libidinous and indecent practices and behaviour towards him by touching him, lying on top of him and trying to make him perform a sex act.
A separate charge alleges that Watson did the same to a girl before she performed a sex act on her at the same address and on the same dates.
In Cupar Sheriff Court on Thursday, Watson’s defence advocate, Lili Prais, said: "The Crown have disclosed an expert report to the defence and we have instructed our own expert.
"His report will not be available until mid August so the defence require to adjourn the trial diet. The defence will lodge and intimate a list of defence witnesses."
Sheriff Charles MacNair QC set a jury trial for September 10, and ordered Watson to appear at a pre-trial hearing on August 30.
Watson of Churchill Place, Rosyth, Fife denies the two charges.
