A Gloriavale teacher accused of allegedly assaulting four children has once again declined to have a lawyer representing him saying “the Lord is helping me”.
Vigilant Standtrue, 39, appeared in the Greymouth District Court on Wednesday on seven charges of assaulting children between 9 and 11 years old.
He had previously refused legal representation saying he did not want a lawyer and could not afford one.
