No plea from South Nowra youth to sexual assault charge

A 19-year-old South Nowra male charged over the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl in 2015 has appeared in court.

The teenager is charged with having sexual intercourse with a person over 14 and under 16.

He did not enter any pleas to the charges brought by the Child Abuse Squad in Wollongong.

The matter appeared before Magistrate David Williams in Nowra Children’s Court on Thursday.

Court papers said the youth was 17 at the time of the alleged offence in the early hours of April 4, 2015 and the girl was 15.

The matter will return to court in September.
