Scott Trial Date Set

Cr David Scott

Kapiti Councillor on trial in May for alleged indecent assault

Kapiti Coast District Councillor David Scott will go to trial on May 21  on a count of indecent assault.
The jury trial is set down for three days.
Cr Scott,71, has retained veteran counsel Hugh Rennie, QC to lead his defence.
The charge relates to events involving a female council employee in April last year.

Kapiti Coast Mayor K Gurunathan will be a witness at the trial.
Since the charge was laid Scott has been attending council meetings subject to special conditions so he is not in the same room as the complainant.
