Father denies sexual abuse of daughter

July 14, 2017

Jayne Gersbach is suing her father, solicitor Rodney Gersbach, over alleged child sex abuse.

A solicitor being sued by his adult daughter has told a Sydney court he never sexually assaulted her.

But Rodney Gersbach agreed he had disciplined Jayne Gersbach when she was at primary school, possibly five or six times, by hitting her on her clothed buttocks with his belt.

The 61-year-old gave evidence in the NSW Supreme Court on Friday at the lawsuit brought by his daughter.

The 34-year-old is pursuing aggravated damages after claiming her father sexually abused her when she was aged between four and 19.
