Barker College Coach Faces Claims Of Sexual Indecency With Students

  0 Carly DeMarque | March 20th, 2018 | News

Former Barker College volleyball coach in Australia, Bradley Robert Wall, 24, is facing new claims that he sent out indecent messages to boys and assaulted a teenager. The allegations started back in 2017, with Wall being arrested back in September over allegations he had been grooming a teenage boy with sexually explicit social media messages.

Initially, Wall was charged with using a carriage service for child pornography material after allegedly meeting the first boy at an interstate volleyball convention. After a tip, Victoria Police arrested Wall at Manly Golf Club where he worked occasionally.

It is not believed that any of the new alleged victims were from Barker College.

“As we have not been informed of these new charges and to our knowledge, do not believe that any of the alleged victims are Barker students, we are not able to pass on information we do not have to our parent community,” said Barker school head Phillip Heath to Daily Mail Australia.

Wall had been employed with the school since 2013 and prior to the charges made against him was appointed the coach of a state U15 volleyball team. Now, his contract with the school has been suspended.

Wall was granted strict conditional bail at court and is yet to enter a plea to any charges. He will return to court on May 22.
