Tuesday, December 05, 2017

Update: 4:20PM TWENTY-ONE people were charged with a total of 31 separate incidents of alleged sexual-related offences in November this year.

The ODPP revealed there were 20 victims of the 31 separate incidents of whom five victims were under the age of 18 years.

These matters were withdrawn due to insufficient or inconsistent evidence.
