Kapiti District Coast Councillor David Scott has opted for trial by jury on charges alleging an indecent assault on a female council worker.

He appeared in the Porirua District Court yesterday, where he was represented by Mike Antunovic

At an earlier hearing, Cr Scott (71) had requested a judge-alone trial.

At that stage, Mr Scott, who is pleading not guilty, told KIN that he opted for a judge-alone trial because he just wanted to get his case dealt with as soon as possible.
