Ac­cused al­lowed bail

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

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

Peter Flavel was the prin­ci­pal of Wood­lupine Pri­mary School 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 on con­di­tion that he have no con­tact with any­one un­der the age of 16.

Ap­pear­ing in Mid­land Mag­is­trates Court last Thurs­day, Mr Flavel’s 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.

In the com­ing months, Mr Flavel will face al­le­ga­tions that he sex­u­ally as­saulted an eight-year-old boy in 2008.

Child abuse squad de­tec­tives charged the fa­ther in Fe­bru­ary with sex­ual pen­e­tra­tion of a child un­der 13 and in­de­cent deal­ings with a child un­der 13.
