New sex abuse charge for teacher

3:02 pm on 9 July 2014

An Auckland school teacher faces a fresh charge of sexual abuse against a young girl after another complainant came forward.

The teacher's name has been suppressed to protect the identity of the young children involved.

The man appeared at the High Court in Auckland today where the new charge was formally added to the court file.

The former teacher now faces 25 charges of unlawful sexual contact with a child under 12 and will go on trial in September.

The name of the school is also suppressed.
