A former foster carer has been charged with the alleged historical assault of two girls in the Hunter.
Police began investigating the man in September after they received reports of the abuse of the girls, then aged 8 and 10, while they were in his care between 2002 and 2004.
The 65-year-old man was arrested at Raymond Terrace Police Station on Friday and charged with 3 counts of indecently assaulting a victim under 10 years of age, 5 counts of inciting aggravated indecency on a victim under 16, 6 counts of aggravated indecent assault on a victim under 16 and 6 counts of aggravated sexual intercourse of a victim aged 10 to 14.
He fronted Raymond Terrace Court on Friday where he was refused bail.
He’ll front the same court today.
