Court date for coun­cil­lor

Kapiti Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

A Ka¯piti Coast dis­trict coun­cil­lor ac­cused of in­de­cent as­sault is to ap­pear in court again in Oc­to­ber to set a date for his trial

David John Scott, 71, has pleaded not guilty to the charge that he pressed him­self against a fe­male coun­cil worker in front of the mayor on April 13.

A trial date in De­cem­ber is ex­pected to be con­firmed. Welling­ton Dis­trict Court judge Denys Barry re­manded him on con­tin­ued bail.

The con­di­tions in­clude that he must not as­so­ciate with the com­plainant, or with three wit­nesses ex­cept within busi­ness hours for coun­cil work, and that they must not dis­cuss the case.
