Broadbeach man charged with child exploitation offences - 28 November 2016

A 61-year-old Broadbeach man has been charged with child exploitation offences following an investigation conducted by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC).

The CCC will alleged that the man was in possession of child exploitation material and was using peer to peer computer software to access child exploitation material, including image and movie files.

A number of computer and electronic storage devices were seized and will be forensically examined by the CCC.

CCC officers, with the assistance of members of the Gold Coast Child Protection Investigation Unit, executed a search warrant at residential address in Broadbeach last Friday (November 25).

The 61-year-old was issued with a Notice To Appear before Southport Magistrates Court on 17 January 2017 to face the following charges:

  • 1 x Possessing Child Exploitation Material contrary to section 228D Qld Criminal Code 1899; and
  • 1 x Use a carriage service to access child pornography material contrary to section 474.19(1)(a)(i)&(aa)(b) Commonwealth Criminal Code 1995;

As the matter is now before the courts, the CCC is unable to comment further.
