SA man charged with child exploitation offence

Hands in handcuffs

Detectives from the Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team (a partnership between SAPOL's Special Crimes Investigation Branch and the Australian Federal Police) today arrested a 31-year-old man from the Mid-North for making a child amenable to sexual activity.

The man has been bailed to appear in the Port Pirie Magistrates Court on 13 July 2017.

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 report online at

Use of the phrase ‘child pornography’ actually benefits child sex abusers:
•           It indicates legitimacy and compliance on the part of the victim and therefore legality on the part of the abuser
•           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.
