Two former teachers have been charged with failing to report child sex abuse.
One of the private school teachers who became the first in WA to be charged with failing to report sexual abuse has revealed he will plead guilty to the charge, but he will not learn his punishment until the victim has had a chance to describe his pain.
As revealed by The West Australian this week, two former teachers at a private boys’ schools were criminally charged with failing to report child sex abuse, following allegations a student was sexually assaulted by teammates during an overseas sports trip.
The incident, in 2017, led to both teachers leaving the school and disciplinary measures against the students involved.
