Dundalk court: Man accused of possessing child sexual abuse images

A 32-year-old man accused of possessing computer-generated child sexual abuse images, last week failed to get his bail terms varied at Dundalk district court so he can join his wife who has moved back to their home country.

The defendant, who can’t be named due to reporting restrictions, is charged with possession of material which was allegedly recovered from a Samsung mobile phone and from a Lenova laptop at his home in Drogheda on December 5th last.
