 Charge of Child Pornography Offences Brought Against Australian Labour MP

Media reports indicate that an Australian Labour MP has been charged for allegedly accessing child pornography.

The man, who cannot be named until his committal, was arrested at his house in Adelaide's northeast suburbs, News.com.au reported.


He was charged with two counts of possessing child pornography and two charges of taking steps to access child pornography.

The police are still investigating the case, and the MP will appear in Adelaide Magistrates Court on May 20.

Police said the arrest was the result of the Sexual Crime Investigation Branch's ongoing 'Operation Decimate', which targets people who use the Internet for child exploitation-related offences.

The maximum penalty for possessing child pornography in South Australia is five years jail for a first offence, and the maximum penalty for an aggravated offence in seven years jail.

It is believed several laptops were seized from the MP's suburban home, while turmoil swept state political circles after details of the incident emerged.
