A man appeared in the dock at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Friday charged with nine counts of possessing an extreme pornographic image and four charges of making indecent photos of a child.

Brian Magee (32), with an address at Mount Street in Coleraine, is alleged to have committed offences in 2016.

During a Preliminary Enquiry – the legal step to send a case to the Crown Court – the defendant said he had no objection to the proceedings.

A prosecution lawyer said she submitted on behalf of the Crown that on the basis of the papers before the court there was a case to answer.

A defence solicitor said he had no contrary submissions.

Deputy District Judge Laura Ievers found there was a case to answer.

She sent the case to Antrim Crown Court for arraignment on May 21.

The defence lawyer said the defendant was a part-time worker who had been on bail since his arrest.

Magee was given bail on the sum of £500 with no bail conditions.
