Child abuser not guilty of molesting boy's younger sister
A 40-YEAR-old man sent to prison earlier this year for sexually abusing his stepson has been found not guilty this week of molesting the boy's little sister.
The former Tiaro man, who cannot be named to protect to identity of the children, was found not guilty in the Maryborough District Court on four counts of indecently dealing with a child.
Prosecutor Clare Kelly told the court the girl alleged said her stepfather repeatedly touched her inappropriately "every chance he got" between 2007 and 2011, starting when she was 11 years old.
Five witnesses, including the girl's parents and grandparents, were called to give evidence.
A not guilty verdict was returned on Thursday.
The man was jailed for seven years in March after he was found guilty of sexually abusing his stepson.
The court heard he forced the boy to receive oral sex and perform anal sex between 2008 and 2010.
The boy was aged 13 when the abuse began.
