Cult woman defends Pebble

An alleged sexual assault victim of William “Little Pebble” Kamm had said in 1997 she could not fulfil her calling to be one of his “queens” because she didn’t want to share him, the District Court has heard.

Maria Louisa Bos, 27, a member of Kamm’s Order of St Charbel, based near Nowra, said the alleged victim, who had left the property but had come back, had said she “wanted to seek his forgiveness because she had done something wrong”.

Ms Bos was called by Greg Stanton, defending Kamm, 53, who is being tried before Judge John Williams on four charges of aggravated indecent assault and one of aggravated sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl.

The court has heard that the alleged victim had become “mystically married” to Kamm and was one of 12 queens and 72 princesses “designated” by the Virgin Mary to conceive a new race with him. In answer to the Crown prosecutor, Richard Herps, Ms Bos said that in 2002, when the allegations had been made against Kamm, she had decided to speak up in his defence. The hearing resumes today.
