Pilbara News - - News - Cally Dupe

Dressed in a black suit with his grey hair neatly combed, the el­derly man ac­cused of sex­u­ally abus­ing a young girl in Tom Price more than three decades ago ap­peared calm dur­ing his third court ap­pear­ance on Fri­day.

Eric Vin­cent Mil­lard, 73, said noth­ing but clasped his hands to­gether as he took to the stand at Perth Mag­is­trate’s Court on Jan­uary 27.

His case was ad­journed un­til April 21 and his bail ex­tended at the re­quest of his lawyer. Mr Mil­lard, who lives in Perth, was ar­rested in Septem­ber.

It is al­leged he had as­saulted the young girl 24 times be­tween 1979 and 1986.

In Novem­ber, he pleaded not guilty to 24 counts of in­de­cent deal­ings with a child un­der the age of 14.
