Teacher accused of selling girls for sex

An adult literacy teacher in Australia allegedly offered homeless girls a place to live then sold them to men for sexual intercourse for up to $170 (RM545) each time.

Mark Ronald Glover, 53, was granted conditional bail in Sydney's Fairfield Local Court Tuesday after being charged, among other offences, with aggravated sexual assault of a child under 16 years and causing two children - then aged 15 and 13 - to act as prostitutes between 2000 and 2004.

The man denied all six charges. Police allege he advertised child prostitution services in the local paper and encouraged a girl, then 13, to reveal her real age to the men who raped her. They allege he kept 40 per cent of the fees for himself.

Glover also told the girl to record a voice message for callers responding to the ad, police said, and he arranged for the men to meet her at ''various cheap hotels'' in Casula and Warwick Farm.

In the case of another girl, then aged 15, police claim Glover sexually assaulted her and she was instructed to have sex with men for $170.

''It should be noted that both complainants, in conjunction with their tender ages, were exceptionally vulnerable,'' police told the court.

''Both were homeless at the time of meeting the accused, who appears to seek out under-age girls … to procure them to participate in acts of prostitution.''

Police arrested Glover at his home on Monday night. They allege he told them he knew the two women who have accused him of ''running'' them as prostitutes but that he only knew of their involvement in prostitution as adults.

Police opposed bail but his legal aid lawyer, Arthur Aguirre, said his client had no family, worked seven days a week, and was not a flight risk.

He agreed to report to police every Saturday and offered $20,000 (RM64,139) as security for his bail before he next appears in court on August 18.
