JOHANNESBURG – Parktown Boys’ former assistant water polo coach Collan Rex has been found guilty of 144 counts of sexual assault and 12 counts of common assault.

Earlier the defence argued in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court that he should be acquitted on a number of charges due to the poor credibility of some witnesses.

The 22-year-old had faced 327 counts when his trial started last month – however, he then pleaded guilty to 144 counts of sexual assault against 12 of the 23 boys who are complainants in the sex scandal that has rocked the school.
