Graham Kay’s former victims Angela and Juanita (right) say they felt sick that he’d been released.Two former victims of a convicted serial rapist have watched on from a Sydney court gallery as their attacker pleaded not guilty to fresh charges.
Graham James Kay, who terrorised Sydney’s north shore with a series of rapes in the 1990s, is charged with the common assault of a teenage girl last Tuesday.
Kay, who served 18 years in jail for six sexual assaults that occurred between 1995 and 1996, was released from prison in 2015.
The 66-year-old did not appear before Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday, but lawyers representing him told magistrate Brett Shields their client pleaded not guilty to assault and intimidation.
Watching on from the front row of the gallery were Juanita and Angela, who were sexually assaulted by Kay in the 1990s.
Outside court, the pair told reporters they felt sick at the thought he’d been released.
“It’s sickening and I’m angry. My heart is going thump, thump, thump, thump. My stomach is churning,” Angela said during an adjournment.
“It was very traumatic what we went through.”
Juanita said she couldn’t understand how Kay was released.
“I feel sick,” she said.
Separate to the alleged assault, Kay is also charged over three alleged breaches of supervision orders.
The breaches relate to Kay not disclosing to authorities he was having “an intimate relationship” and that someone was staying at his house, court documents reveal.
He also allegedly did not truthfully answer questions from his department supervising officer.
Kay did not apply for bail and did not enter a plea to the breaches. He is expected back in court on May 8.
