A County Armagh man has been returned for trial on multiple counts of making indecent images of children.

Appearing for a committal hearing was Richard Campbell (57) from Main Street, Hamiltonsbawn who is accused of 16 charges running from 2008 to 2020.

Some of the images include titles such as, ‘Disturbing 12-year-old model posing nude’ and ‘Moscow boy and girl’.

A prosecuting lawyer told Craigavon Magistrates Court there is a case to answer which was agreed by District Judge Bernie Kelly.

Campbell did not object to the proceedings and declined to call witnesses or give evidence on his own behalf at this stage.

Judge Kelly set bail at £500 and ordered Campbell to appear for arraignment at Craigavon Crown Court next month.
