04 NEWS MONDAY JANUARY 25 2021 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Woman accused of car theft AN Alice Springs woman has been arrested and charged with stealing cars overnight. According to NT Police, the woman, of an unknown age, was arrested at Barrett Drive about 11pm on Saturday. She allegedly stole several cars in the Alice Springs area and has been charged with stealing and trespass of a motor vehicle. The woman will appear in court at a later date. It comes after four youths were arrested last week for allegedly stealing two NT government cars. One car was stopped following a police chase and the other was found abandoned. SARAH MATTHEWS A FORMER teacher who represented himself at a trial accused of raping his student has walked free after being found not guilty. Michael Neade, 55, stood trial from the bar table last week, charged with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent and two counts of carnal knowledge with a child. He was found not guilty of all counts by a jury after about three hours of deliberation. During his closing argu Ex-teacher not guilty of raping 8yo student ment, Crown prosecutor Stephen Geary said the complainant had been a student at the remote NT school where Neade taught from 1995-1996. He was aged eight or nine at the time. The complainant, who gave evidence at trial, said Neade invited him to his on-campus flat on several occasions. On one visit, the complainant said Neade took a naked picture of him and on another he said Neade performed oral sex on him and then humbugged him to do the same to Neade. The complainant told police of the alleged abuse about 26 years later, when he was in custody himself. During Neades closing address, he summed up evidence given by witnesses he had called during the trial including his two children. She (Neades daughter) spoke about lunch time wed go home for lunch together, he said. She spoke about fishing, we would go fishing together as a family, hunting together as a family. She identified not seeing (the complainant) coming to the flat during that period. He said his two kids and wife were with him seven days a week, 24 hours a day, rendering the complainants allegations impractical. He also said that he did not use a camera at the school in question, so could not have taken a photo of the complainant there. However, he said he had taken a photo of the complainant alongside other young boys when they were in Abor iginal ceremonial dress. He said facing a Supreme Court trial without a lawyer had been difficult. Giving this evidence to you, Ive found it very hard to try and put together all this, and what exactly was not said and said towards this whole case, he said. It is understood Neade had been previously represented by the Northern Australian Justice Agency. Neade, who had been in custody since his arrest in 2018, walked free on Friday.
