Child pornography accused could take charges to trial

A NORTH Mackay man could take two child pornography charges to trial.

Edwin John Moffat, 69, faced Mackay Magistrates Court on Wednesday on two counts of using a carriage service to access child pornography material.

He did not enter pleas to the charges.

Defence solicitor Erin Beer, of Legal Aid Queensland, said Moffat's charges could be committed to a higher court.

Magistrate John Aberdeen ordered a brief of evidence be disclosed by the prosecution by November 15.

Moffat's bail was continued and his case was adjourned to November.
