In light of the revelation that David Hogg, has been found guilty of a single count of sexual intercourse without consent, Pro Bono Australia has taken the decision to remove him from the Impact 25 list.
The founder and former managing director of disability support organisation Lifestyle Solutions, who was a winner of Pro Bono Australia’s 2015 Impact 25 award, was found guilty of a single count of sexual intercourse without consent at a District Court trial in Sydney in February 2018.
His conviction relates to an incident on Friday 29 July 1988 when the female victim was 16 years old and Hogg, who was known to her, was 35.
He stepped down from his role of managing director in June 2016 and Lifestyle Solutions has previously confirmed that he no longer has any involvement with the organisation.
