The New South Wales police are all set to put a former dorm master behind bars after numerous complaints of child sex offences were received against him.
The 72-year-old teacher was arrested on Tuesday in Queensland and was returned to Sydney on Thursday. He was charged with child abuse cases reported between 1967 and 1970 when he worked at a school in the Blue Mountains. According to Sky News, no bail has been given to the guilty perpetrator and he is due to be presented in the Central Local Court in Sydney on Friday.
The dorm master has been charged with four counts of crimes which are one for buggery and the rest for indecent male sex offences. The NSW police released a statement on Friday informing the public about the matter. “About 1 p.m. on Tuesday (10 May 2016), police from Blue Mountains Local Area Command, with the assistance from Maroochydore Child Abuse Unit, arrested a 72-year-old man at an address in Queensland,” the statement read. “He was taken to Maroochydore Watch House, before appearing before Maroochydore Court House where an extradition to NSW was granted.”
Police confirmed that the investigation is still going on and the count of charges might increase based on further details revealed in the case.
In April, Yahoo News reported a case where an 84-year-old man was put behind bars following the child abuse complaints against him. Ian Douglas Davidson was alleged of assaulting former Greens leader Bob Brown in the 1950s. However, it was the child sexual abuse against an 11-year-old Sydney boy in 1960s that led to his imprisonment. He was charged with around nine counts of crime, including one of buggery against the 11-year-old and six counts of indecent treatment of Brown.
