Ex-teacher on child sex charges

A former teacher appeared in court today after he was charged with child sex offences.

Shaun Tate has been charged with three counts of sexually penetrating a 15-year-old in July and October this year.

The 44-year-old was employed at St Mark’s Anglican Community School in Hillarys until October.

The charges are not connected to the school or its students.

Mr Tate applied for a bail variation in Perth Magistrate’s Court today so he could travel to the UK next month.

He is due to appear in court again in January.
