Former gynaecologist accused of sex offences to face trial

A FORMER Lismore gynaecologist is still awaiting a trial on extensive allegations of sexual offences.

Glenn Allan Taylor, 64, was formally arraigned in Sydney in April on allegations relating to more than 30 women.

His matter has been back before the court for what's understood to have been arguments into legal issues.

The case returned to the Downing Centre District Court on Friday, July 5 and it was adjourned until August 12.

It's understood Mr Taylor's trial is not expected to begin until early next year.

The allegations, which include charged of aggravated indecent assault under authority and aggravated sexual assault under authority, date from 1993 to 2016.

The court has previously heard the trial could span up to six months.
