Man charged with more than 50 child sex offences

A MAN has been charged with more than 50 child sex offences allegedly committed on four young boys between 1982 and 2003.

The 56-year-old man was arrested by NSW Police at Goulburn Police Station about 3.00pm yesterday.

It comes after detectives from the State Crime Command’s Sex Crimes Squad launched an investigation in 2014 to investigate sexually-based offences reportedly committed on two boys in the early 2000s.


During the investigation, detectives identified further offences, which were reported to have been committed against two other boys in the 1980s and 1990s.

The man was charged with 51 offences, including aggravated sexual assault, buggery, assault, attempted sexual assault, indecent assault, act of indecency, and detain person for advantage.

The man has been refused bail to appear at Goulburn Local Court later today.
