A former deputy principal at Kellyville High School in Sydney’s north-west charged with online child exploitation offences has been granted strict bail, under which he must live with his mother in the Blue Mountains.
Damien Wanstall was stood down from the school after his arrest last week, following an investigation by police from the child abuse and sex crime squad.
In December, detectives began engaging online with Mr Wanstall, who believed he was speaking with a 14-year-old girl. Police say he engaged in sexually explicit conversations about acts he wanted to perform on the child.
On Tuesday, Mr Wanstall appeared in Parramatta Court where he was granted strict conditional bail under which he must report daily to his local police station, surrender his passport and live with his mother in the Blue Mountains. The 47-year-old is not permitted to leave the home between the hours of 8pm and 8am unless for a medical emergency.
