Man arrested over child exploitation material offences, SA

A 55-year-old man from the southern suburbs has been arrested for using a carriage service to access child exploitation material, according to SA Police.

He has been bailed to appear in the Victor Harbor Magistrates Court on 10 November.

THIS IS CHILD EXPLOITATION, NOT ‘CHILD PORNOGRAPHY’

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.

Anyone with information about people involved in child exploitation material are urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or online at https://crimestopperssa.com.au
