Man accused of making indecent images of children freed on own bail of £500

He will appear before Craigavon Crown Court in October

Craigavon Magistrates Court

A Portadown man accused of making indecent images of children will face the Crown Court later this year.

The 57-year-old was released on bail with conditions he is not in contact with anyone under the age of 18 and is not in possession of an article which can access the internet.

John O’Connor, of Parkside, appeared charged with 12 counts of making indecent photographs of children, two counts of possession of a prohibited image of a child and two counts of possession of extreme pornographic images at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

It was heard these offences were alleged to have occurred between December 4, 2014 and November 14, 2015.

Standing in the dock the defendant submitted to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Prosecution stated that they believed that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence solicitor Joseph McDonald made no contrary submissions.

O’Connor was released on his own bail of £500 to appear before Craigavon Crown Court on October 15.

Conditions included; not to have contact with anyone under the age of 18 directly or indirectly and not to be in possession of any article which has access to the internet.
