He pleaded not guilty and was placed on $100,000 bail, and ordered to return to court on Tuesday, October 27, before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.

The prisons director, who recently received a national award, calmly walked into the court and sat quietly, before the charge was read in-camera. He maintained his calm demeanour while leaving court and proclaimed his innocence to reporters who were waiting outside.

“I’m prepared to defend myself in the court come the 27th [next Tuesday] and I am definitely sure that I will be vindicated.”

The sexual assault allegedly took place last January.
