A 52-YEAR-old grandfather from Palmerston
in the Northern Territory has indicated
he will plead guilty to at least 40 child
sex offences in the Supreme Court.
The man, who cannot be named, faced a
committal hearing in the Darwin Magistrates
Magistrate David Loadman found there was
enough evidence to refer his case to the
Prosecutor Mark Heffernan claimed the man
indecently dealt with his granddaughter and
six of her school friends between 1996 and 2005.
The alleged victims were all aged under 12 years,
with one 10 years old.
The charges against the man include attempted sexual
intercourse with a child aged under 16 years, sexual
intercourse without consent and maintaining a sexual
relationship with a child aged under 16 years.
Other charges include:
INTENTIONALLY exposing a child to an indecent object, film, video or book;
INDECENTLY dealing with children aged under 12 years;
TAKING or recording an indecent image of a child aged under 12 years;
COMMITTING an act of gross indecency on a girl aged under 14; and
UNLAWFULLY procuring a child under 16 to perform indecent acts.
The 52-year-old was remanded in custody to appear
at an arraignment in the Supreme Court in March.
Defence lawyer Alan Woodcock asked that he be allowed
to appear by video link instead of being physically
brought to court.
The defendant applied for bail in December 2005 on the
grounds he was possibly suffering from lung cancer.
But magistrate Greg Cavanagh refused because of the
seriousness of the charges.
The man did not make a bail application yesterday.
