Man denies child sex offences
A Warwick man denied a series of child sex offences when he appeared at Supreme Court arraignments yesterday.
The 25-year-old, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, pleaded not guilty to four charges involving a girl under the age of 14.
The man is accused of attempted unlawful carnal knowledge on a date between June 27 last year and September 11 last year.
He is also accused of one count of unlawful carnal knowledge and two counts of sexual exploitation of a young person by a person in a position of trust.
The offences are alleged to have happened on or about September 23 last year.
The man was released on $10,000 bail with the condition he has no contact with the alleged victim.
The man is expected back in court on April 16.
In a separate case, the arraignment of a 29-year-old Devonshire man accused of child pornography offences was adjourned until this morning.
The man, who also cannot be identified for legal reasons, was charged with eight counts when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court on February 16.
He was not required to enter a plea because the case must be heard in Supreme Court.
In addition, the arraignment of Ehbony Allen, 30, was postponed to April 9.
Ms Allen was charged in Magistrates’ Court last month with three counts of wounding with intent.
He also was not required to enter a plea in the lower court.
