A date has been set for the arraignment of a Lismore gynaecologist has been set in the District Court after his matters had been delayed due to further complaints.
Dr Glenn Allan Taylor was listed to appear in Lismore District Court this morning to be arraigned on 60 charges – 42 counts of aggravated indecent assault victim under authority and 18 counts of aggravated indecent assault victim under authority.
The former Richmond Hill resident did not appear at court but was represented by solicitor Steve Spinks.
After an agreement between the crown prosecutor and Mr Spinks, Judge Laura Wells adjourned Dr Taylor’s matters until November 9.
This date was set to coincide with a District Court super call over.
The super call over was introduced by the District Court in 2016 to manage its caseload.
At a super call over both parties discuss issues surrounding the case, including any plea negotiations before the trial commences.
Dr Taylor, who is now residing in Queensland, is yet to enter a plea to any of the charges and remains on conditional bail until his next appearance.
A Lismore doctor accused of the sexual and indecent assault of a number of patients is expected to be arraigned in the District Court this morning.
Dr Glenn Allen Taylor is listed to appear before Lismore District this morning to be arraigned on sixty counts of sexual and indecent assault, many of which are alleged to have occurred at his Uralba St rooms.
In March 2016, detectives formed Strike force Cranberry to investigate allegations against Dr Taylor after a 21-year-old woman told police she had been sexually assaulted by him.
After investigations by detectives revealed at least two other women had allegedly been sexually or indecently assaulted by 61-year-old Dr Taylor, his Uralba St clinic was raided on November 2, and a number of items were seized.
Initially Dr Taylor was charged with four counts of aggravated indecent assault – victim under authority, and one count of aggravated sexual assault – victim under authority.
When the story about Dr Taylor was publicised in the national media, several other alleged victims made complaints to Strike Force Cranberry, which resulted in him being charged with 60 counts of sexual and indecent assault of a victim under his authority.
The charges related to alleged incidents dating back to 1993, the court has previously heard.
