NSW carer raped and gave drugs to girl

AAP logoAAP 24/10/2016

A 60-year-old male carer allegedly raped and supplied cannabis to a teenage girl in his charge on the NSW mid-north coast.

Reports a 14-year-old girl had been indecently assaulted prompted a police investigation in Port Macquarie last month, police said.

The 60-year-old was charged on Friday with two counts of aggravated indecent assault, sexual intercourse with a person aged 14-16 and supplying a prohibited drug to a child.

The man, who is no longer a carer, faced Taree Court on Saturday and was refused bail to appear again on Tuesday.

Alternate care arrangements were co-ordinated for the girl last month.
