Police allege the sexual offences happened in 2001.

“At the time of the (alleged) offence, the man was a teacher at a school in the Mid-West Gascoyne district and the victim was a student at the same school,” police said in a statement on Monday.

Mr Cox, who now lives in the Perth suburb of Doubleview, was granted bail.

He is scheduled to face court again on December 2.
