Child con­tact al­lowed for school prin­ci­pal

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

THE bail con­di­tions of an al­leged sex of­fender have changed to al­low him con­tact with his three chil­dren.

Peter Flavel was prin­ci­pal of Wood­lupine Pri­mary School when he was charged last month with sex­u­ally abus­ing a child 10 years ago.

The charges re­late to in­ci­dents that al­legedly took place at an­other pri­mary school where Mr Flavel was prin­ci­pal at the time.

The 56-year-old was orig­i­nally re­leased on bail under the con­di­tion that he have no con­tact with any­one under the age of 16.

He ap­peared in Mid­land Mag­is­trates Court last Thurs­day, where his bail con­di­tions were changed to al­low him con­tact with his young chil­dren. Mag­is­trate Kevin Tavener said the change would no longer pre­vent Mr Flavel from see­ing his own chil­dren be­cause it was be­lieved he posed no risk to them.
