I saw SHIT last year and I was blown away. Incredible script. Incredible acting.

A teacher has been charged over the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl between 1995 and 1997 in the northern rivers.

A number of items were seized from the home that will now undergo forensic examination.

He was refused bail and is due to appear before Ballina Local Court today (Thursday 14 January 2016).
