The Australian actor John Jarratt wants to deal with a historical charge of sexual violence against him in the express lane until the test date & # 39 ;, because it continues to influence his film and television career, a court has heard.
The 66-year-old star of the Wolf Creek The franchise was charged in August this year, accused of raping a woman he lived in a sub-house more than 40 years ago.
Jarratt did not appear on a brief report of the case in the local court of the Downing Center on Tuesday, but his lawyer Bryan Wrench insisted that the star should continue to be guilty of the historical accusation.
"It's a non-guilty plea altogether," Mr Wrench said.
He expressed his concern at the Prosecutor's request to find another week's delay, awaiting the planning of a case conference, which Mr Wrench argued was unnecessary in the light of Jarratt's plea for not guilty.
