Witness in Little Pebble trial rejects money making claims

Australian Broadcast Corp./June 17, 2005

A woman who says a NSW south coast religious figure sexually assaulted her 12 years ago, has denied publicising the allegations for financial gain.

The man, William Kamm, also known as Little Pebble, is standing trial in the District Court.

The 27-year-old woman says in 1993 she was sexually and indecently assaulted by Kamm at his religious community near Nowra on the south coast.

The then 15-year-old and her family were part of the community, and she told the court in Sydney that the assaults occurred after she was chosen to be one of Kamm's 12 "queens".

Under cross-examination from Kamm's lawyers, the woman agreed she was paid $2,500 for an interview with a Channel Seven current affairs program in 2002.

She told the court she had the first meeting with the reporter before she made a statement to police, but has denied she was seeking to make money.
