Rick Thorburn child rape case adjourned amid new charges

The child rape case against Rick Thorburn has been adjourned as prosecutors work on a new indictment against him.

Thorburn, 57, faces trial over the alleged rape of a girl under the age of 12.

The offence is alleged to have occurred while he worked at a Chambers Flat childcare operated by his wife a few years ago.


In the Beenleigh District Court on Tuesday, prosecutors had the case adjourned to May 7 to give them time to organise the offences into one indictment.

Details of the charges were not revealed.
