Geelong schoolgirl groped at bus stop

A MAN groped a 14-year-old schoolgirl as she waited at a Geelong bus stop, a court heard yesterday.

On March 10 this year, Neil Hogg approached the victim, who was waiting at the bus stop with a friend, near a secondary school.

The prosecution told the court Hogg tried to talk to the girls but then started stroking the victim’s dress and gripped her thigh through the material.

Hogg yesterday pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates’ Court to one count of committing an indecent act with a child under 16. The court heard the girl tried to walk away but then broke into a run when she thought he was following her.

The prosecution said the girl reached her house where she told her father about the incident.

Hogg was later seen catching a bus from the same stop, the court heard.

The court was told that on April 28, Hogg was charged and made full admissions to police.

“No, I shouldn’t have done it,” he told police.

Hogg said he was simply trying to flee the scene and was not following the victim home.

The defence acknowledged Hogg had an intellectual disability and previous problems with alcohol but that this was his first sex offence and that was a “worrying development”.

As it was a class-two offence, Hogg was told he would be placed on the sex offenders register for eight years.

Magistrate Rosemary Carlin said that she wanted Hogg to enter a sex offenders program and adjourned sentencing until November 17 for a pre-sentence report and justice plan.
