Deputy principal accused of sexually assaulting boy

A FORMER primary school deputy principal accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy appeared in court on Friday morning.

It is alleged Carl Stirling Sexton, who was stood down from his job at Lake Monger Primary School in September, agreed to meet the boy at a toilet block in a Wanneroo park.

It is believed Mr Sexton met the boy through an online app and they agreed to meet at the park where the alleged offences took place in August.

The 51-year-old Joondanna man was charged with six counts of sexually penetrating a child aged between 13 and 16, and two counts of indecently dealing with a child aged 13 to 16.

He appeared in Joondalup Magistrate’s Court where his lawyer Carolyn Smiddy-Brown advised he would not enter pleas and requested the matter progress to a police committal mention.

Magistrate Jennifer Hawkins put the matter through to January 10 and extended Mr Sexton’s bail.

The boy was not a student at the school where Mr Sexton worked.
