Paedophilia Charges

A former Sydney private school teacher who allegedly used Minties to entice young boys to go skinny-dipping and sleep nude with him will face a committal hearing in May.
Gary Maxwell Featherstone, 55, is facing a total of 74 charges which relate to acts of indecency and intercourse with four boys aged 11 to 16. The acts are alleged to have happened at Featherstone's Sydney home and at various YMCA summer holiday youth camps in and around Sydney between 1981 and 1990.
Featherstone, who remains in custody, was not required to appear at Sydney's Central Local Court today where a five-day committal hearing was set down for May 23 to 27.
According to documents tendered to the court, the committal proceedings will hear from five witnesses.
Featherstone, a former teacher at Pittwater House Grammar School, was arrested in October last year as he walked free from Sydney's Long Bay jail, where he served 12 months for importing child pornography.
Police have alleged that while on a camp in the Richmond area, Featherstone told about 10 boys in his group that he would give them a Mintie if they agreed to swim and sleep naked with him.
No bail application was lodged today.
