75 year old Cave is facing a raft of sex and drugs charges from his time at Dilworth School and St. Paul’s College, Hamilton.
- A witness has given evidence in the Auckland High Court today alleging that he saw Cave fondling his friend after a night of alcohol at the former music teacher’s Waiheke bach.
- The witness was a boarder at Dilworth School where Cave taught. He was aged 15 or 16 at the time.
Cave denies all charges and has pleaded not guilty.
When asked what happened the witness described how he woke up and walked into a bedroom where he caught the teacher ‘in the act.’
It was 40 years until the man spoke of the incident, when he approached police.
Cave’s lawyer challenged the witness’ recollection of the night, but the man was certain it had happened.
The trial continues.
