Milawa pursuing micro energy grid
A MAN accused of exposing himself outside Wangaratta Magistrate’s Court in April while waiting to give evidence in a murder case has denied the charge.
Paul Kerr, 47, of Wangaratta, appeared on the charge before Magistrate David Faram at Wangaratta Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Representing Kerr, solicitor Nancy Battiato said although there were a number of statements from witnesses saying they saw the alleged indecent exposure, mobile phone images taken at the time showed Kerr’s trousers were indeed at waist level.
The incident happened as Kerr was about to give evidence in the murder case of Jacob Allan, who is accused of murdering Wangaratta man Russell Berry in a violent brawl in White Street in May last year.
Kerr pleaded guilty in March this year to charges of affray and recklessly causing serious injury in the same incident that took Mr Berry’s life.
Kerr’s current case was adjourned to November 8 for a contest mention and his bail was extended.
