High Court dismisses child sex appeal

Posted Thu Dec 6, 2007 11:16am AEDT

A man has failed in a High Court appeal against child sex convictions.

Graham James Gately was convicted in the Queensland District Court in 2004 of 10 counts of indecent treatment of a girl under 16 and one count of incest.

Gately argued in the High Court that the jury should not have been allowed a second viewing of a video of the victim giving her evidence.

The court decided that replaying the video to the jury without the court reconvening was irregular but had not led to a miscarriage of justice.
