A Raumati doctor has used a wooden ruler to measure KCDC Councillor David Scott during his trial for alleged indecency against a KCDC woman employee.
Bernard Cammack, the defendant’s doctor, who practises at Paraparaumu Beach, was asked by the defence lawyer to examine Mr Scott in private to establish the length of his penis — and how it measured up against what the complainant said she felt.
The measurement has been suppressed by Judge Peter Hobbs.
Details of accusation
Kāpiti Coast District Councillor Scott is on trial before a jury in the Wellington District Court, accused of rubbing his genitals against a member of council staff during a morning tea break in April last year.
He denies the charge.
According to a Stuff report, the complainant said it was not a wallet or something else in Cr Scott’s pocket which she felt as he passed by her at the morning tea.
She said what she felt touch her back was four or five inches long.
She looked back and saw Scott.
The defence is contending that what she felt was Scott’s wallet.
Earlier, Crown prosecutor Kate Feltham told the Court Mr Scott said it was physically impossible for him to have indecently assaulted the woman and she must have been mistaken.
He said he had recently had an operation on his genitals, which made any contact in that area extremely painful.
The case continues today (Wednesday the 23rd).
