Former principal faces sex charges

A FORMER principal of a Grafton high school, Frank Bailey, 44, has been committed for trial in the District Court at Grafton on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a person in his care.

The former principal of St Andrew’s Christian Community School at Grafton appeared before Grafton Local Court yesterday via a video link.

Magistrate Kim Pogson told the court there was enough evidence available to convince him that Bailey should be sent to trial in front of a jury.

He asked Bailey if he would like to say anything to the court but warned him that it if he did it could be used as evidence.

Bailey said: “I am not guilty of this charge.”

He will be tried at Grafton on March 31.
