Woman charged over foster care abuse

A 60-year-old woman has been charged with the sexual abuse of a child at a group home in Perth more than 20 years ago.

Police will allege that in 1996, while employed as a foster carer and manager of the Doubleview Group Home, the woman was party to the sexual assault of a six-year-old boy.

The Midvale woman has been charged with five counts of sexual penetration of a child and two counts of indecently dealing with a child and is expected to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court on Monday.
