Sydney swim teacher Kyle Daniels, accused of child sex abuse, takes the stand in court

Police officers called a Sydney swim instructor a “disgusting paedo” and were laughing about what would happen to him in jail after he was arrested for sexually touching his students, a jury has heard.

Kyle Daniels was in the witness box on Tuesday when he described feeling scared after he was taken into custody but was treated well by one officer to whom he later wrote a note.

“Thank you for treating me like a human being it meant the world to me,” he said he wrote in the note.

The 22-year-old has pleaded not guilty to 26 charges, including multiple counts of having sexual intercourse with a child under 10 and indecently assaulting a person under 16.

He is accused of touching nine of his students aged between five and 10 on or near their genitals while instructing them between February 2018 and February 2019 at a pool on Sydney’s north shore.
