The driver charged with manslaughter in the deaths of 39 people found in the back of his truck has made his first court appearance in Britain.
Maurice Robinson appeared in Chelmsford Magistrates Court via a video link from prison Monday but was not required to enter a plea.
The 25-year-old will be kept in custody until he appears at a higher court on Nov. 25, where he will be expected to enter a plea.
He is charged with 39 counts of manslaughter, two counts of conspiracy to facilitate human trafficking and other crimes.
His lawyer did not request that Robinson be freed on bail.
