Maddox pleads not guilty in Waugal case

LOCAL real estate agent Tony Maddox (blue shirt) is due to return to court in July after pleading not guilty to allegedly breaching Aboriginal heritage law on his Toodyay property.

Mr Maddox entered a not guilty plea at a second brief hearing in Northam last month.

Magistrate Donna Webb adjourned the case to Monday July 10 for a trial date to be set.

The prominent local businessman is being prosecuted for alleged failure to obtain State permission to build a vehicle crossing over Boyaggering Brook, which runs as a winter creek on his property and is held to be the home of the Waugal mythical serpent.
