Man used hidden camera to film girls, court told

A MAN who allegedly used a hidden camera to record indecent images of two female children, including one in his care, will spend almost two months in jail until his next court date.

Magistrate John Smith revoked the man's bail in a Maryborough court on Wednesday, deeming him at risk of reoffending if he remained free.

The man is accused of hiding a covert surveillance camera in rooms used by the alleged victims between 2010 and 2011.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Chris Elder said the camera was hidden in at least one bathroom and at least one bed room.

The Maryborough man faces multiple charges of recording indecent images of children under 16.

He is also accused, some time between 2012-14, of one count of indecently dealing and one count of attempting to indecently deal with one of the victims while she was in his care.

The court heard the man was now living alone and he had no further contact with either of the alleged victims.

Mr Smith said despite this, there was still an unacceptable risk the man would reoffend.

The man is also charged with contravening a domestic violence order in February this year.

He will next appear in Maryborough Magistrates Court in late June for a committal mention.
