Net User Charged Over Child-Sex

A QUEENSLAND man has been charged with child-sex offences after he allegedly travelled to Western Australia to meet a child he met over the Internet.
Police allege the 49-year-old Townsville man spent a week chatting on the net to a police officer who he believed was a child under 16, and who he arranged to meet before travelling to WA.
The man allegedly engaged the police officer in sexually explicit conversation and sent sexually explicit material.
Inspector Kellie Properjohn said the fact he had travelled to WA showed such crimes had no borders.
"We are dealing with international and national predators that choose to come to WA to exploit our children," she said.
The man has been charged with using electronic communication to procure a person the offender believed to be under 16 years to engage in sexual activity, and using electronic communication to expose a person the offender believed to be under 16 years to indecent matter.
He will face Perth Magistrates Court today.
The man is the second person to be charged under WA's tough new cyber predator laws introduced last month, which allow police officers to trawl the Internet searching for pedophiles.
