Possess Child Abuse Material Charges Dropped

RELATED TO: Child Abuse Material, Sex Offences
CRIMINAL CASE

All charges have been dropped against our 38 year old client from Darlinghurst who was accused of ‘possessing child abuse material‘.

Police executed a search warrant upon our client’s home after they intercepted telephone calls and emails between him and another man allegedly containing sexually explicit conversations and material about children.

They seized and examined his computers, which allegedly stored sexually explicit images and videos of children.

However, our defence team found that the alleged ‘child abuse material’ was amongst thousands of adult pornographic images and videos, and our forensic analysis concluded that the child images may have been downloaded accidentally.

Detailed written submissions were made to the prosecution advising that they could not prove beyond reasonable doubt that our client was aware of the images.

After intense negotiations, all charges were withdrawn in Downing Centre Local Court.
