Saffin's son on child porn charges

FEDERAL MP for Page, Janelle Saffin, confirmed last night her 23-year-old son, Ned was charged this week with three counts of possessing child pornography.

“I love my son,” she said in a statement.

“I know he has been charged.

“As the matter is before the court I won't be making any further comment.”

Her son, from Lismore, allegedly had equipment seized from a Renwick Street house in Lismore Heights in March.

He will face Lismore Local Court on August 25.

Police will allege that on March 25 officers attached to the Richmond Local Area Command executed a search warrant on the address after they received a tip-off that a man had child pornography in his possession

A computer, hard drives and digital image storing devices were seized in the raid. Police said when the equipment was analysed, offensive images were found.
