ABOUT 10 witnesses are expected to be called to a two-day contested hearing in Warrnambool during June involving a man accused of “dry humping” a woman at a Koroit hotel.
Isaac Wallace Templeton, 28, of Geelong, has indicated he will plead not guilty in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court to indecent assault but guilty to unlawful assault.
This week a Warrnambool police prosecutor and Geelong-based solicitor agreed 10 witnesses would be called to give evidence.
The contested hearing has been scheduled for June 27 and 28.
The police prosecutor said an incident was alleged to have occurred at an event involving a large number of people from a football club.
Previously, police prosecutor Senior Constable Kevin Mullins said that on June 10 last year a woman was at a hotel when, without warning, Mr Templeton allegedly grabbed her in a bear hug, which she resisted but was pulled close, humiliating and upsetting her.
