A COMPLAINANT of an alleged gross indecency offence yesterday said in evidence that he allowed the accused person to perform sexual acts on him because he could not control his feelings.
The State witness was an 18-year-old Form Six student when the alleged offence was committed in 2010, and where the accused worked as a school bursar at the maritime school.
The court heard one of the alleged offences was committed sometime that year when the witness was asked to get a key from the accused person's home to take to the vice principal.
Again on March 14 in 2011, the witness alleged that the accused again performed sexual acts on him before they had sex when a teacher sent him to get sugar from the accused person's house.
Defence lawyer Kalisito Maisamoa asked the witness why he did not walk away when the accused asked him for sex.
The witness replied: "I respected him like a teacher. Anything he said I will have to do it."
The witness said the accused did not force him to have sex.
DPP lawyer Roneil Prakash yesterday made an application before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili to make amendments to the charge.
Mr Prakash said the State could not locate its fifth witness, therefore, they would have to remove the fifth count of gross indecency. The accused is now charged with 11 counts of gross indecency.
The hearing continues today.
