THE owner of a Lavington swimming pool business will return to court in June after being charged with aggravated indecent assault against an employee.
Tap-Ky Duong, 41, was arrested in November by child abuse detectives based in Albury.
It’s alleged the Lavington man indecently assaulted a female at some point in August.
Charges before the court allege that “at the time of the assault (he) committed an act of indecency on (the complainant)”.
It’s alleged he touched the victim’s buttocks.
Police allege the incident was aggravated due to the fact the female was under Duong’s authority at the time of the incident.
It's alleged the incident occurred at some point between 3.45pm on August 1 and 5.30pm on August 31.
The incident is alleged to have taken place at Lavington.
The victim can't be named for legal reasons.
The Breen Street resident was taken into custody about 9am on November 8 by detectives.
Duong is on bail and has appeared before Albury Local Court three times, and has entered a plea of not guilty.
His matter will return to the court on June 14 for a hearing.
It's understood the 41-year-old is not involved in the swimming club except for undertaking administrative work out of hours.
The Border Mail's questions to GT Aquatics were directed to Duong's lawyer, Mark Cronin.
ASIC documents show Duong has had the Wagga Road based business since April 2001.
