Bob Collins charged with child abuse in Canberra

By johnboy 15 September 2006 1

Former ALP Senator Bob Collins has in the past faced allegations of child abuse in indigenous communities.

Now the ABC is reporting that he’s been charged here in Canberra with child sex offences. It is alleged he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy in Canberra in 1989.

Unfortunately it seems likely he isn’t going to live long enough to face trial.

What’s Your opinion?
