Man, 69, charged over child pornography

A 69-year-old man appeared in Magistrates’ Court this morning to face child pornography charges.

The defendant, from Pembroke, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged with two counts of accessing child pornography.

The alleged incidents took place between March 2015 and November 2017.

It is alleged the man had amassed 113 videos and 752 images.

The defendant was not required to enter a plea as the case must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released the man on $6,000 bail.

He was ordered to surrender his passport and notify the court before any travel.

The case was adjourned until November 1.
