Former teacher to face more child sex charges

A FORMER Mandurah teacher, facing 16 child sex charges, will appear in court tomorrow on another child sex charge as it is believed another victim has come forward.

Matthew Edward Faulkner, 53, will appear in Armadale Magistrates Court charged with one count of indecent treatment of a child under 14 years of age.

This charge is on top of the 16 child sex charges he is facing in Perth Magistrates Court next month.

Mr Faulkner, now of Pinjarra, is a former head of primary school at Mandurah Catholic College, where some of the alleged incidents took place, and a former principal at St Joseph’s College.

At his last Mandurah court appearance in August, Mr Faulkner indicated he would vigorously defend the charges.

Mr Faulkner is not expected to enter a plea at tomorrow’s court appearance.
