The Advertiser reports one of the victims said the sexual abuse began in a swimming pool when she was just 6-years-old.
“I wanted to be in the deep end, all my friends were able to swim in the deep end,” she said.
“Brenton and I would lean on the edge … he would be against the wall and I would be on his lap or sitting on his knee.”
The girl said Dickson sexually assaulted her inside her bathers while his hand was under the water.
Dickson has pleaded not guilty to nine counts of persistent sexual exploitation and one count of aggravated indecent assault.
The trial continues.
