Philip Wayne Hart
The offending allegedly occurred when M was aged between seven and thirteen. Mr Hart had an “on again, off again” relationship with M’s mother, M and M’s younger brother for most of that period.
That earlier offending took place when Mr Hart asked M to sit on his knees to read to him, regularly rubbed her genitalia and digitally penetrated her.
The offending was said to have begun when M and her family were living at an address in one suburb of Christchurch in 1999-2000. After a break, M and her family moved to an address in another Christchurch suburb in 2002 where it was alleged offending re-commenced. There was then a break of about two years in Mr Hart’s cohabitation with the family, though the children continued to visit him and further offending was said to have occurred.
