Jury making progress on Pebble case

The jury deliberating on sexual assault charges against a religious leader known as The Little Pebble is “making progress” and expects to reach a verdict, the NSW District Court was told today.

After nearly two-and-a-half days of considering allegations against 55-year-old William Kamm, Judge John Williams today asked the jury if there was any prospect of reaching a verdict by today or tomorrow.

“We’re making progress,” the jury foreman told the court.

“We are not ready yet (to give a verdict) but I believe we will.”

The jury will meet again in the morning to further consider four charges of aggravated indecent assault and one of aggravated sexual intercourse involving a 15-year-old girl.

Kamm is accused of interfering with the girl between July and November of 1993 when she and her family were living in a commune at Cambewarra near Nowra on the NSW south coast.
