"Child Abuse Trial Of Ralph Mauger Continues"

Day 5 of Mauger trial

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4

It's day five of trial of a former Jersey Centenier facing child sex abuse allegations.

77 year old Ralph Cyril Mauger faces seven counts of indecent assault and one of inciting an act of gross indecency.

The charges involve girls between the ages of 6 and 14, and are crimes alleged to have happened between 1998 and 2006 at a house in Grouville.

Today, the last of the prosecution witnesses, former Detective Constable Tim Rowe who was the investigating officer in the case, was cross-examined by defence advocate Stephen Baker.

Advocate Baker tried to show to the jury that his client had nothing to hide during the following exchange:

Advocate Baker: "There was no sign of interest in children on Mr Mauger's computers?"
Tim Rowe: "No there wasn't."
Advocate Baker: "You didn't give Mr Mauger notice you were about to arrest and search him?"
Tim Rowe: "No we didn't. He did not seem very surprised when we turned up though."

This afternoon the defence will begin to set out their case and call their witnesses.

The trial was originally expected to last five days at the Royal Court but is now expected to last into next week.
