Ac­cused toi­let snap­per in court

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

A SOBERLEY dressed Llan An­thony was is­sued with a bail vari­a­tion af­ter ap­pear­ing at Lis­more Lo­cal Court yes­ter­day morn­ing.

The Nu­mulgi res­i­dent, who was clean shaven and wear­ing a dark jacket and trousers, has been charged with with two counts of film­ing a per­son in a pri­vate act with­out con­sent to ob­tain sex­ual arousal, and one count of com­mit­ting an in­de­cent act.

He also faces al­ter­nate charges of two counts of of­fen­sive be­hav­iour, and film­ing 61 peo­ple with­out their con­sent.

Mr An­thony, 44, pleaded not guilty through his so­lic­i­tor, Ed­wina Lloyd.

Mag­is­trate David Heilpern then ad­journed the mat­ter un­til June 18.

Ms Lloyd also asked he be ex­cused from ap­pear­ing at the hear­ing.

Mr Heilpern agreed, as long as Mr An­thony had for­mal le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

The mag­is­trate then made a vari­a­tion to Mr An­thony’s bail con­di­tions, which re­stricted his calls to us­ing a land­line.

“I add the clause al­low­ing you to use a mo­bile phone only to call, text or email your le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tive, doc­tor, psy­chol­o­gist and ther­a­pist,” he said.

Po­lice said Mr An­thony came to their at­ten­tion af­ter he was al­legedly ob­served look­ing at a plain­clothes po­lice of­fi­cer over a cu­bi­cle wall of the South Lis­more pub­lic toi­lets on Union St on March 8.

He was ar­rested on March 23 at his prop­erty which he shares with his part­ner, was re­fused bail and spent the fol­low­ing week­end in the Grafton Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity.

Mr An­thony was orig­i­nally granted bail un­der the con­di­tion he not visit or loi­ter near pub­lic toi­lets, not use any elec­tronic de­vices ex­cept land­line phones, not visit the Lis­more Bun­nings store and not leave his Nu­mulgi home un­less ac­com­pa­nied by his de facto part­ner.
