Former Parktown Boys’ assistant water polo coach Collan Rex to be sentenced in court today

Former Parktown Boys’ High School assistant water polo coach Collan Rex will today, 31 October, be sentenced in the High Court sitting at Palm Ridge Magistrates’ Court.

This follows the judgment in which Rex was found guilty on 144 counts of sexual assault and 12 of common assault.

During his trial, Rex pleaded guilty to 144 charges of sexual assault against 12 schoolboys.

Rex also faced charges of attempted murder, rape, sexual grooming and exposing minors to pornography.

During his trial, he admitted to acts of grabbing and squeezing boys’ genitals as well as rubbing his penis against several boys while they were fully clothed.

The sentencing in the trial against Rex was postponed in September because the victim impact statements conducted by social workers were incomplete.

Sentencing is set to begin at 10am tomorrow.

Bikers Against Bullies South Africa (Babsa) invite the public to join them as they complete a mass ride tomorrow as a show of support to the Parktown Boys’ victims.

The team will meet at Mike’s Kitchen in Parktown at 7am and leave at 8.30am to ride to the high court as well as escort the parents as part of the ride.

About 100 bikers have already confirmed their attendance for the ride.

Jason Firmani of Babsa said, “This is a show of support for the boys and their families who have been through a really rough time. The purpose of the ride is to get them in better spirits and show we are behind them.”

Rosebank Killarney Gazette will be in court tomorrow reporting directly from the court.
