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.
