Adelaide man charged with producing aggravated child exploitation material


This is a joint media release between the Australian Federal Police and South Australia Police

Detectives from the Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team (JACET), a partnership between South Australia Police Special Crimes Branch and the Australian Federal Police, last night arrested an Adelaide man for producing aggravated child exploitation material

The 31-year-old man from the northern suburbs was charged with two counts of producing aggravated child exploitation material. It will be alleged the exploitation material produced included depictions of a child under the age of 14 years. 

The man has been bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 10 May.

Members of the public who have any information about people involved in child exploitation material are urged to call Crime stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at


Use of the phrase ‘child pornography’ actually benefits child sex abusers because:

  • it indicates legitimacy and compliance on the part of the victim and therefore legality on the part of the abuser; and
  • it conjures up images of children posing in ‘provocative’ positions, rather than suffering horrific abuse.

Every photograph captures an actual situation where a child has been abused. This is not pornography.
