A Broome man charged with the rape and assault of a woman has been granted bail to reside in a remote community. Stephen Dededar appeared in Broome Magistrates Court via video link from Derby Prison on September 20, charged with aggravated sexual penetration and unlawful assault resulting in bodily harm. The court heard Mr Dededar allegedly sexually penetrated and assaulted the woman, who was previously known to him. A bail application was made by defence lawyer Paul Tobin for Mr Dededar to reside in the remote community of Wangkatjungka. The application had strict conditions, which required Mr Dededar to remain in jail until such time he could be directly transported by motor vehicle to the community, and to not make any attempt to contact the alleged victim. The bail was set at $1000 and Mr Dededar was instructed not to enter within 20km of the Broome township, unless to receive urgent medical attention or to attend court. Magistrate Stephen Sharratt said he would grant the bail as long as the strict protective bail conditions were met. “It’ll take a long time to get through this Mr Dededar,” Magistrate Sharratt said. He was granted bail to reside in the remote community of Wangkatjungka until his next hearing in Fitzroy Crossing on October 6.
