The former manager of Broome’s Roebuck Bay Hotel, who was charged with a string of sexual offences earlier this year, has been slapped with additional sexual assault and drug charges dating back three years. Stewart Patrick Burchell was scheduled for a trial call in Broome Magistrates Court on Monday but had an additional 12 charges listed on top of his current 13 indecent assault offences. The new charges include six counts of supplying and offering to sell cocaine, four counts of indecent assault, one count of common assault and one count of sexual penetration without consent, dating back to February 2020. The 49-year-old had previously pleaded not guilty to the 13 indecent assault charges in May, with the alleged offences taking place between March 2017 and March 2023. At the time of the alleged offences, Mr Burchell was employed at the Roebuck Bay Hotel — a popular Broome pub known for its weekly wet-T-shirt competitions. According to his employment history on social media, Mr Burchell started working at the pub in October 2016 after previously being employed in managerial roles at various hospitality venues across Australia. With more than 20 years experience in hospitality, specialising in management and “maximising productivity and staff performance”, his employment with the Roebuck Bay Hotel has since ceased since the allegations arose. The Roebuck Bay Hotel has been at the centre of controversy this year, with a contracted crowd controller facing Broome court over a vicious assault against a patron in broad daylight. The venue also pleaded guilty to breaching a Liquor Licensing Act condition in June over the Mardi Gras Dance Party which saw them fined $1000 due to security not wearing fluorescent vests at the event. As a result of the new charges added to Mr Burchell’s current charges, his trial has been vacated and he is due to appear in Broome Magistrates Court on December 11 when his trial date was originally allocated. He did not enter a plea to the new charges and is due to reappear in court on November 13.
