I’m a Celebrity finalist Ash Williams has pleaded not guilty to recording an intimate image of a woman without her consent, allegedly taken during FaceTime phone sex.
Williams, who was part of last night’s Reality TV finale, did not appear in Newtown Local Court today.
News.com.au reports lawyer Lauren MacDougall was “instructed to enter a plea of not guilty to the criminal matter”.
“In November 2020, officers from Inner West Police Area Command received a report of an offence allegedly committed by a 38-year-old man,” NSW Police previously said in a statement.
“Following further investigations, the man was charged with intentionally recording intimate image without consent on Friday, 18 December 2020.”
Ms MacDougall also asked for Williams to be excused from appearing if legally represented when the case returns to court on March 23rd.
Williams previously told The Sunday Telegraph he was upset by the allegation.
“I’m distressed about the impact it’s had on members of my family, particularly my mum,” he said.
