Queensland man charged with 97 online child sex offences

A 31-year-old man has been charged with almost 100 online child sex offences following a two-month investigation.

Police executed a search warrant at the man’s home in Wandoan on March 8, where they seized a number of devices allegedly containing child exploitation material.

Following forensic analysis of the devices, officers have since been able to identify numerous alleged online child sex offences.


The investigation also uncovered information relating to a number of alleged online sex offenders located in the United States, police said.

Further intelligence submissions have been made to relevant authorities in relation to the discovery.

The 31-year-old man’s charges include more than 70 counts of grooming a child under 16 with intent to expose to indecent matter, 15 counts of using a carriage service to solicit child pornography material as well as five counts of possessing child exploitation material and one count of using the internet to procure children under 16 years.

He is due to appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court on June 20.
