A top Australian intellectual property lawyer who is a partner at Herbert Smith Freehills’ Australian IP relationship firm has been charged with indecent assault, according to Australian and international media reports.
Carl Harrap, 40, allegedly attacked a 20-year-old woman on the morning of Dec. 28 on a jogging track near Sydney’s north shore. He was tackled by people nearby and arrested by local police after allegedly jumping out of bushes and grabbing the young jogger’s crotch. A local police spokesperson said Harrap was charged with “assault with act of indecency.” He was later released on conditional bail but is required to appear at a local court on Jan. 18.
