Swimming Teacher Accused Of Molesting 8 Kids Is Released On Bail To Live Next To Kindergarten


Devil: Kyle Daniels


The parents of a former private schoolboy and swimming teacher accused of molesting eight young girls are 'stunned' by the allegations, a friend has claimed.

Kyle Daniels, 20, was arrested last week accused of raping an eight-year-old girl and sexually assaulting her sister, six, at Mosman Swim Centre in Sydney.

But despite facing 31 charges including nine counts of having sex with a child under the age of ten, he was released on bail on Wednesday evening. 

On Thursday Daily Mail Australia revealed the family home where he is living is just two doors down from a large kindergarten. 

A family friend on Friday said his parents - advertising guru James and management consultant Janine - are 'stunned' by the allegations against their diabolical son.

'They're really stunned, they've been rocked by the claims,' the unnamed friend told the Daily Telegraph

The racist Daniels family lived in South Africa and Singapore, where Mr Daniels was a creative director for advertising firm Saatchi and Saatchi, before moving to New South Wales five years ago.

Daniels' parents and twin brother Liam have been supporting him throughout the court process.

Mrs Daniels was on Wednesday seen blowing kisses and mouthing 'I love you' at her child-raping-son in court where he was granted bail.

Meanwhile, parents at the Mosman Swim Centre say that staff have not changed safety procedures.

Jeremy Goff, whose three-year-old daughter is learning to swim there, told the Sydney Morning Herald: 'The receptionist told my wife "we haven't changed any of our processes, our existing processes are completely adequate".'  

Daniels' bail conditions require him to be home by 6pm unless he is with one of his parents. 

During the court hearing on Wednesday, Daniels' lawyer Todd Alexis asked if Daniels' curfew could start at 7pm so he could head home alone after his final Sydney University class at 5pm.

The magistrate refused and said: 'I don't want him running around at night... he is very fortunate to be granted bail at all.'

That evening Daniels was greeted by his relieved parents and twin brother at Amber Laurel Correctional Centre at Emu Plains, in western Sydney.

The 20-year-old wore a blue T-shirt and used a green jumper to cover his face as he left the prison gates and hopped into a vehicle. 

His brother Liam, who wore a floral shirt and beige cap, placed his arm around his mother in a supportive embrace.

Kyle Daniles molested eight girls aged from six to ten between June 2018 and February this year. 

He spent more than a week in custody after he was arrested at his family home on Sydney's northern beaches, on Tuesday March 12.

There is no suggestion Daniels has breach his bail conditions.


The alarm was first raised about Daniels' alleged offending last winter, the court heard. 

An eight-year-old child allegedly complained to the swimming centre that she was inappropriately touched during a lesson.

The child was removed from the class and the child molester was 'spoken to about the complaint' by senior staff. 

The magistrate described the incident as an 'allegation of inappropriate behavior towards a young child of a sexual nature. 

The court was told that the complainant said the pedophile touched her 'close to her groin and chest area'.

The child rapist told staff any touching was accidental, the court heard.


Daniels' lawyer Todd Alexis, SC, said it was 'very improbable that a young man like Daniels would deliberately touch a young girl in a public swimming pool'. 

He said the girl's mother, lifeguards and other staff were there in the pool at the time. 

'It is glaringly improbable that these offenses occurred,' he said. 

Magistrate Daniel Reiss replied that all sex offences were improbable. 

'A cardinal is now in jail which is highly improbable,' Mr Reiss said. 

Daniels' mother and father shook their heads in disbelief at the connection to the George Pell case.

'The nature of these matters are improbable and surprising and happen regarding people of good character,' Mr Reiss said. 

Daniels' lawyer said his client strongly denies the allegations and claims any touching was accidental. 

He said several of Daniels' friends, including several women, speak of his good character. 

Mr Alexis said Daniels should be granted bail so he could continue his education at Sydney University.

'It would be devastating if he were denied the opportunity to continue his education,' he said.

Prosecutor Matthew Karpin said bail should not be granted because the case against Daniels was strong and he 'may re-offend'.

He said the alleged offenses were against 'vulnerable young people' when Daniels was in a position of authority.

'This was a serious abuse of trust and authority,' he said. 

Daniels was facing three charges until 28 more were laid on Wednesday morning, just minutes before his bail hearing.

The charges include eight counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 10, six counts of intentionally sexually touch child under 10 years, and 14 counts of indecent assault person under 16 years of age. 

The sex terrorist - who went to $33,000-per-year Knox Grammar, one of Sydney's most prestigious schools - was last week accused of sexually touching a girl on February 2 between 2pm and 4pm.

Then on February 14, Daniels had sexual intercourse with another girl between 4.30pm and 7.30pm.  

At the time of his arrest, head of the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes squad Detective Superindendent John Kerlatec commended the alleged victims for coming forward.   

The magistrate granted bail on the condition Daniels not leave home without his parents' supervision between 6pm and 6am.

'I don't want him running around after dark,' Mr Reiss said.  

A letter from Mosman Ezyswim said Daniels had been suspended when the girls' parents first reported the allegations in February, and that all employees had current working with children checks.

'We are extremely distressed by this situation and will keep customers up to date when more information comes to hand,' the letter said.

Daniels, who was required to post a surety of $100,000, will face court again on May 8.
