Dentist back in court

Dr. Ian Venter briefly appeared in court on 10 October 2017 on a charge of contempt of court. He was arrested in May 2017 after it came to light that he did not adhere to bail conditions for a sexual offence involving a minor.

In 2014 Venter was sentenced to 4 years correctional supervision after pleading guilty to a charge of sexual misconduct involving a minor.

In May 2017 it was discovered via a facebook entry by one of his patients, that Venter was still treating minors at his dental practice. This was in contravention to bail conditions that specified that he was not to work near or treat minor patients. His name was also entered into the register of sexual offenders.

The case was postponed to 23 October 2017 to give Venter enough time to consult with his legal team.

Venter will also appear in the Thembalethu Magistrates Court on 5 December 2017 on a charge of sexually molesting a 13 year old boy at his luxury home in Herolds Bay on 11 April 2015.
