A LEADING Worthing borough councillor has been charged with threatening to kill a woman. He is also accused of assaulting the 25-year-old woman, whom he formerly employed as an au pair for his two children.
Paul High, 50, of Compton Avenue, Goring, who represents Heene ward, is the Tory council's cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport.
He strongly denies assaulting and threatening Susannah Krammarics in October. He also refutes the woman's claim that the pair were engaged. Mr High, who lives with his two sons from a previous marriage, was charged on Tuesday and will appear before Worthing magistrates on January 24.
And there's me thinking the Tories have become a bunch of pussies..........Oh wait his alleged victim is a woman.
