A South Australian state Labor MP has been arrested and charged for using the Internet to access child exploitation material, in an ongoing police operation called Operation Decimate*.

According to South Australia Police, the MP was arrested at home and charged with possession of child pornography, an aggravated count of possession of child pornography, and two counts of trying to access child pornography.

Under SA laws, child pornography offenses may be aggravated either because the offender knew the victim was aged under 14, or because the offence was committed in company with others.

The accused cannot be named, because such offences invoke an automatic suppression order. He was bailed after being charged, and will next appear in court on May 20th.

Adelaide Now reports that police first raided his home last Tuesday, and spent a day analyzing the contents of his computer. Another computer was seized on Wednesday prior to the arrest. ®

*We presume South Australia Police don’t know that “decimate” only gets rid of one in ten. ®
