More stupefying, sex charges laid

One of the men already charged with stupefying and sexually assaulting people faced 15 new charges in the Christchurch District Court today.

All four of the men charged with the offending have name suppression and that is to continue until their next appearance late in August when their lawyers will have to give reasons why the suppressions should continue.

Today’s charges are dated from July 2015 to November 2018 and allege the 36-year-old man offered to supply mdma, known as ecstasy twice, stupefied 10 people, indecently assaulted two women, and sexually violated a woman.

Judge Raoul Neave remanded all four on bail to August 30.
