A man accused of making and distributing indecent images of children will face the Crown Court later this year.
The 51-year-old was released on bail with a condition banning him from being in possession of any device which has access to the internet.
Martin Henderson, of Alexander Park Avenue, Belfast, appeared charged with 16 counts of making indecent images of children, two counts of possession of an indecent image of a child, three counts of possession of a prohibited image of a child, five counts of possession of extreme pornography and distributing an indecent image of a child at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
The offences were all alleged to have occurred between December 31, 2014 and June 7, 2016.
Standing in the dock, the defendant made no objection to the holding a preliminary enquiry.
Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.
Defence solicitor Suin Downey made no contrary submissions.
Henderson was released on his own bail of £500 to appear before Craigavon Crown Court on October 10 for arraignment.
District Judge Bernie Kelly made it a condition of the defendant’s bail that he was prohibited from possessing or having access to any device which had access to the internet.
