Accused facing child porn trial

By Alan Erwin

A man is to stand trial accused of a catalogue of child porn offences, a judge ruled yesterday.

Aidan Mark O'Connor faces 15 separate charges of possessing indecent photographs of children.

The 52-year-old, whose last address was hostel accommodation in Belfast, is further accused of having an extreme pornographic image. The alleged offences relate to dates between May 2006 and November 2012.

O'Connor appeared before Belfast Magistrates Court for a preliminary enquiry hearing to establish if he has a case to answer. Prosecutors argued there was enough evidence to proceed and applied to have him returned for Crown Court trial on a date to be fixed.
