Former school counsellor charged over alleged assault of students – Narooma

A former school counsellor has been charged over the alleged assault of two students at a high school on the Far South Coast.

In August 2019, officers from South Coast Police District commenced an investigation following reports two girls – aged between 13 and 15 – had been assaulted by a school counsellor.

Following extensive inquiries, detectives arrested a 55-year-old man at Narooma Police Station just before 11am today (Thursday 13 August 2020).

He was charged with four counts of common assault.

Police will allege in court that the man physically assaulted the girls during counselling sessions between 2016 and 2018.

The man was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Narooma Local Court on Thursday 17 September 2020.
