Pool worker on child sex charges
A WOMAN employed at a Central Queensland public pool is facing child sex charges.
The woman cannot be identified by law as a committal hearing is pending.
She is charged with three counts of indecent treatment of children under 16, and a child under 12 years.
The alleged offences occurred between July 30 and August 17 last year.
A concerned citizen, who contacted The Morning Bulletin, said the woman had been working at the pool since last year and should not be allowed to work with children.
The manager of the pool refused to comment on the woman's charges or employment saying it was a “personal issue”.
A spokeswoman for the council responsible for the pool said it was unable to respond to the allegations.
The spokeswoman said the pool lease was managed by the pool management committee and day-to-day operations were the responsibility of the lessee.
She said the council's role as a member of that committee was in terms of general performance and capital works.
