A Pil­bara man charged with a series of child sex of­fences ap­peared be­fore court last week.

The ac­cused faced Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court via video link on 10 charges that in­clude pos­sess­ing and dis­tribut­ing child ex­ploita­tion ma­te­rial and us­ing elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tion to ex­pose un­der-16s to in­de­cent mat­ter and pro­cure them for sex­ual ac­tiv­ity.

The po­lice pros­e­cu­tor said there could be fur­ther charges of a sim­i­lar na­ture laid in re­cent weeks after of­fi­cers fin­ish work­ing through a “high vol­ume” of re­stricted pho­tos and mes­sages dis­cov­ered.

The al­leged of­fender has been re­manded in cus­tody un­til his next court date.
