Witness says he busted Ex-Dilworth teacher Leonard Cave abusing boy

witness says he busted ex dilworth teacher leonard

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.

  1. A lot of this kind of thing went on in the 1970s, 80s and before.

    I can name two extremely creepy and inappropriate male teachers from my intermediate and high school years and their extremely borderline behaviour. Just perverts. Makes me cringe just thinking about it. My husband also has stories of some very dodgy male teachers from his all boys private school.

    It’s these perverted men who have ruined it for many other amazing male teachers and why the profession is now largely made up of females.
