Case against bad teacher could be heard next month

THE trial against a Northern NSW school teacher accused of supplying young girls with alcohol and orchestrating a bizarre attack on the principal's home, could be heard as early as next month.

Andrew Minisini, a deputy principal at Coffs Harbour's Orara High and former Banora Point teacher, was arrested late last year after it was revealed he had allegedly given a group of girls alcohol, driven them to the principal's home at Valla Beach and encouraged them to spray obscenities on his walls and fence.

He pleaded not-guilty last month and the case was set down for Monday.

It was mentioned briefly in the Coffs Local Court but a trial date has yet to be set.
