Woman charged with child sexual offences


A 26-year-old woman has been charged with child sexual offences after she was arrested by ACT Policing detectives yesterday. 

In December 2021, ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations - Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team (SACAT) received a report regarding an alleged inappropriate relationship between a female student teacher and a male student. 

SACAT Detectives investigated the allegations, resulting in a search warrant being executed at a residence in Gowrie yesterday (Sunday 21 February 2022).  

A 26-year-old woman at the residence was subsequently arrested and charged with one count of committing an act of indecency on a young person and one count of using a carriage service to send indecent material to a young person.  

The woman is expected to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (Monday 21 February 2022).
