Qld man extradited to NSW over historical child sex offences

A QUEENSLAND man has been extradited to New South Wales and charged over multiple historical child sex offences.

Police launched an investigation into the allegations back in 2017 after three men came forward with stories of abuse dating back to the 1960s and 1970s, when they were aged between 10 to 13-years-old.

Police will allege in court that offences involving two of the boys occurred while the man was a high school teacher at schools in Sydney and East Gosford.


The 82-year-old man was arrested by Queensland Police at a home in Bundaberg on Wednesday.

An extradition warrant was granted at Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday and the man was escorted back to Sydney by Northern Beaches detectives.

He was taken to Mascot Police Station and has since been charged with buggery and four counts of assault male and commit act of indecency.

He was refused bail and will appear in Central Local Court today.
