A 42 year old Ballyroney man facing serious charges of making indecent images of children, and of having sexual intercourse with an animal, appeared back before the local court last week.

Garth Michael Williams from Mill Road Ballyroney, was told that a full file was still outstanding and his case would be reviewed on 14 August.

Williams faces a total of five charges; possession of indecent photographs, making indecent photographs of a child, distributing indecent photos of a child and possession of an extreme pornographic image - each charge relates to 3 March 2014.

The fifth charge is that on a date unknown, he had sexual intercourse with a living animal.

Last Thursday’s court heard this was a new matter and first appeared before the court on 5 April.

His solicitor Mr George informed the court that Williams will be making a bail variation at next week’s court sitting on July 10.
