CCC charges Ipswich man with child exploitation offences — 11.09.2014

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has today charged a 28-year-old Ipswich man with 14 offences for allegedly accessing and sharing child exploitation material.

Officers from the CCC’s criminal paedophilia team, Cerberus, and the forensic computing unit, with assistance from the Ipswich Child Protection Investigation Unit, executed a search warrant at an Ebbw Vale address this morning.

It is alleged that they located a number of computers and storage devices containing child exploitation material.

The CCC will allege that the man used two separate accounts to access and share child exploitation material with other users in closed online networks.

The man was arrested and taken to the Ipswich Watch House where he was charged with the following offences:

  • 4 x Possessing Child Exploitation Material (Qld Criminal Code)
  • 1 x Use a carriage service to access child pornography material (Commonwealth Criminal Code)
  • 9 x Use a carriage service to transmit, make available, publish, distribute, advertise or promote child pornography material (Commonwealth Criminal Code).

The man is scheduled to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates Court on 9 October 2014.

The CCC’s investigation is ongoing.
