Craig McLachlan charged with Sex Offences

Actor and singer Craig McLachlan has been changed with assault and sex offenses by Victoria Police.

McLachlan has been charged with one count of common law assault, one count of attempted indecent assault and eight counts of indecent assault. All charges come from the time McLachlan was starring as Frank-N-Furter in the Rocky Horror Show in Melbourne.

The allegations arose when Rocky Horror co-star Christie Whelan-Browne accused McLachlan of inappropriate sexual behaviour on the ABC. McLachlan was fired from the upcoming Rocky Horror Show production and also from the ABC’s The Doctor Blake Mysteries.

Craig McLachlan will appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court on 8 February, 2019.

The 53 year old actor rose to international fame from his appearance in Home and Away and Neighbours. He was Henry Ramsey, the brother of Kylie Minogue’s character Charlene. He also started in the BBC production of Bugs and more recently the ABC’s The Doctor Blake Mysteries.

In 1990 Craig released his version of Bob Diddley’s ‘Mona’. The song reached no 4 in Australia and no 10 in the UK.

Craig’s current partner is conductor Vanessa Scammell. He has one child with British actress Charlotte Avery. He has been married to Karen Williams (1986) and Rachel Friend (1998-99).
