Shepparton News - - NEWS - By Bar­clay White

Prom­i­nent Shep­par­ton busi­ness­man Steven Andrew Di Petta, 47, made his sec­ond ap­pear­ance in court yes­ter­day to face sex­ual as­sault charges.

Dressed in a suit, the ac­cused said noth­ing dur­ing the brief court ap­pear­ance at Shep­par­ton Mag­is­trates’ Court.

His lawyer made an ap­pli­ca­tion to cross-ex­am­ine a wit­ness, which the pros­e­cu­tion did not op­pose.

The ac­cused, who has not yet en­tered a plea, had his bail ex­tended un­til his next court ap­pear­ance on Oc­to­ber 19.

Mr Di Petta, who lives in Gra­ham­vale, was charged this year with a range of offences across a pe­riod of three years, in­clud­ing stalk­ing, threat­en­ing a wit­ness and sex­ual as­sault.
