Gearing, AmandaThe Courier – Mail [Brisbane, Qld] 30 July 2004: 12.

A MAN charged with 14 child sex offences, including seven counts of sodomising a male foster child, was committed for trial when he appeared in Toogoolawah Magistrate’s Court yesterday. 

Mr [Tony Kingston] said the charges arose as a result of the foster care abuse scandal and a police operation in June last year that then led to a CMC inquiry and the reform of the Department of Children’s Services. 

On four other charges, of possessing tainted property and three of possessing child abuse computer games, the defendant was granted bail and remanded for a committal mention on November 1 in Toogoolawah Magistrate’s Court.
