Pretoria - Modelling company boss Dawie de Villiers will be back in the dock when his case returns to the High Court sitting at Palm Ridge on Monday.

The founder and owner of Modelling South Africa faces 38 counts of rape, sexual assault, indecent assault, sexual grooming, possession and accessing of child pornography as well as fraud and theft.

He allegedly raped and sexually violated several teenage girls between 2011 and 2012. Among the charges he faces is the rape of a 15-year-old girl in 2011.

He then allegedly asked the teenager to have a relationship with him and to send him a picture of her private parts.

De Villiers is also accused of indecent assault after he penetrated an adult female from behind against her will. In the same year, he also allegedly inserted his fingers under a 14-year-old's ski pants.

Thereafter, he allegedly told the girl she sexually aroused him and requested she send him pictures of herself naked or wearing lingerie.

De Villiers also faces charges of exposing pornography to two children aged 7 and 10.
