Text:An 22-year-old employee of Auckland restauranteur Philip David Sturm said yesterday in court that he did not contact police for more than a year regarding allegations of sexual violation because he felt it may have been his fault. The man met Sturm on several occasions at nightclubs and his inner-city offices where they drank alcohol and took drugs, including ketamine and ecstasy, and had sexual relations. The man says he did not consent to the sex, and did not know how it happened. When asked why he continued to contact Sturm after the alleged incidents, the man said Sturm was his only source of drugs. The trial continues today.
