Johannesburg - A Knysna businessman pleaded not guilty to 79 charges, including statutory rape, in the Thembalethu Magistrate’s Court, in George, on Monday.

Adrian Wilson-Forbes, 60, faces charges of statutory rape, abduction, indecent assault, trafficking persons for sexual purposes, and child pornography.

In 2001 Wilson-Forbes allegedly abducted an 11-year-old boy from the Garden Route mall in George, and took him to a local dam where he allegedly exposed his genitals and offered him money to have sex with him.

The boy was allegedly indecently assaulted.

Subsequently Wilson-Forbes allegedly offered the boy money to find him two young girls for sex.

The boy allegedly took photographs of Wilson-Forbes engaging in sexual acts with the girls.

In March last year Wilson-Forbes allegedly contacted his original victim, now an adult, to find him another girl under the age of 12.

The 8-year-old girl was taken to Herolds Bay, near George, where she was allegedly raped.

Wilson-Forbes was arrested after the original victim handed photographs of the sexual acts to the police.

The trial continues on Tuesday.
