Bay teacher accused in court
THE bail application of a 22-yearold former support staff employee at Veldenvlei Primary School will this morning be heard in the Richards Bay Magistrate’s Court.
James Millin appeared in the same court last week where his case was remanded to today (Thursday).
He is facing seven counts of sexual assault following allegations that he inappropriately touched and fondled at least seven boys at the school.
According to reports, Millin turned himself in last week Monday and has remained in custody since.
A mother of one of the victims spoke to the ZO on condition of anonymity and said she was pleased that the matter was now in court.
‘I’m happy that he’s finally been arrested and with the way the case has been handled thus far.
‘We have received immense support and anxiously await the outcome of this case because it has caused a lot of hurt for many families,’ she said.
The ZO broke the story last month in which angered parents were shocked by the startling revelations that came out following an internal investigation conducted by Veldenvlei Primary School into Millin’s conduct.
According to reports, Millin was appointed by the School Governing Body as a support staff employee to teach computer classes.
