Mi­lawa pur­su­ing mi­cro en­ergy grid

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

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.
