Dabs founder released on £10m bail
Checks in at The Priory
David Atherton, the founder of Dabs.com who is charged with attempted rape and drugs offences, has been released on £10m bail surety.
Atherton, 50, is checking into a Priory clinic in Cheshire, "where he has been ordered to follow an in-patient programme for one month", the Bolton News reports. He will then have to report to the clinic each week.
Atherton was charged last week with attempted rape, threats to kill, false imprisonment and possession of a class A drug. The offences were alleged to have taken place in Bolton last Sunday.
His case goes to Bolton Crown Court on October 31. ®
