The ABC is reporting that 61-year-old John Desmond Thompson has appeared in court to face charges of possessing child pornography and drugs. He was apparently arrested yesterday after the “Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team” searched his house.
He is out on bail, apparently the conditions of which stipulate that he cannot use the internet nor be in the company of anyone under 16 years of age – this is until he returns to court in March.
