Fresh twist in case of swim teacher accused of molesting nine girls as potential witness emerges

A potential witness now living overseas has emerged in the case against alleged paedophile swim coach Kyle Daniels.

Prosecutors have confirmed their intention to call on a young child who may have seen the 21-year-old former Knox Grammar prefect allegedly abusing girls when he worked at Mosman Swim Centre on Sydney’s north shore. 

Daniels stands accused of 26 counts relating to the sexual assault of nine children aged between six and 11 years old.

The sickening charges which allegedly occurred between June 2018 and March 2019, include intercourse with a child under 10 and intentionally sexually touching children under 10.

At a brief Downing Centre Local Court hearing on Monday, the crown revealed they will also call on another potential witness now living overseas, The Australian reported.

The pair will give evidence via video link when the case resumes on August 27.  

Earlier this month six alleged victims gave evidence in pre-recorded hearings.

The court previously heard another alleged victim had been given permission to hold a toy during cross-examination to help calm her down, and another will be given pictures to colour. 

Th Sydney University student was arrested in March 2019 and charged with sexually touching two young girls aged six and eight.

In the weeks that followed seven more alleged victims came forward and further charges were laid.

Daniels has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He remains on bail with strict conditions banning him swimming pools, beaches, video arcades, schools and playgrounds. 

Daniels is also restricted from any water sports where a child under 16 may be present.
