The ex-partner of former prime minister Julia Gillard is set to plead guilty to a sexual assault.
Timothy Raymond Mathieson – known during Ms Gillard’s reign as Australia’s ‘first bloke’ – appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Thursday via videolink where his barrister indicated he would plead guilty to a single sex offence charge.
