A former Australian Federal Police officer has indicated he will plead guilty to robbing two women in West Perth.
However when Stephen Michael Adams, who is also a former Immigration Department worker, appeared in Stirling Gardens Magistrate's Court this morning his lawyer indicated he would not be pleading guilty to charges of sexually assaulting one of the women.
Mr Adams, 44, of Como, is facing two charges of sexual penetration without consent, deprivation of liberty, armed robbery and attempted armed robbery.
He allegedly sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman who was waiting for a bus in March last year and then tried to rob a 26-year-old woman in the same area a month later.
In court this morning, Mr Adams' lawyer Seamus Rafferty said his client had asked him to make submissions to State prosecutors regarding the two charges of sexual penetration without consent.Mr Adams was remanded in custody to reappear in court in April.
