Melbourne, Dec 23 (ANI): A Rockhampton dad is facing a rape trial after allegedly forcing his son to have sex with a prostitute because he feared the 14-year-old was gay.

It is said that during a family barbecue around Christmas time in 2007, the dad allegedly phoned a prostitute and arranged to meet her at a motel on Yaamba Road, North Rockhampton.

The father drove his son to the motel and paid the prostitute in 50-dollar notes.

The prostitute took the boy into a motel room while the father waited on a balcony.

The father even walked in and out of the room to check on his son and told him he wanted to see a used condom as proof that they'd had sex.

After the boy and the prostitute had finished the dad took his son home.

Yesterday, a magistrate found that there was enough evidence against the father for him to stand trial for the rape of his son.

Giving evidence during the committal hearing in Rockhampton Magistrates Court, the boy's mother testified she questioned the youngster about where his father had taken him.

"First (he) didn't want to say anything to me. Then he told me his father took him to a motel room and there was a prostitute there. He wouldn't talk, he just started crying," the Morning Bulletin quoted the mother as saying.

The prostitute alleged to have had sex with the teenager has not yet been located.

The prostitute was described to police as being about 28-years-old, tall and skinny with tanned skin and dark, long hair.

Sergeant Knapp said the teenage boy appeared to be quite embarrassed when the police asked him about the rape.

A date will be set in the New Year for the matters to be heard in a higher court. (ANI)
