Child exploitation offender faces jail
A previously convicted man has been found with another 29,380 child sex abuse images on a laptop he used for work. Christchurch District Court Judge Stephen O’Driscoll declined to order a home detention assessment for Corey Andrew Challis, who admitted two charges yesterday. That means the 34-year-old labourer faces jail time, nine years after he received a community work and supervision sentence for similar offending. Judge O’Driscoll remanded Challis on bail for sentencing on August 8.
