Frank Bailey faces court

THE District Court trial of a former high school principal charged with the sexual assault of a girl under 16 continued yesterday, with the Crown and defence arguing over what evidence would be admissible later in the proceedings.

Frank Bailey, who was the principal of the St Andrew’s Christian Community School from 2005 to 2008, sat through the proceedings yesterday dressed in a loose-fitting dark-grey suit. He was often hunched over and frequently held his head in his hands.

Judge Lakatos said he would make a decision this morning on the arguments presented to him during yesterday’s proceedings.

The judge formally noted that he would hear the trial in the absence of a jury.
