Alleged child-sex abuser nabbed
A MAN who failed to show up for his trial on an indecent dealing charge has been taken into custody after being found in Maryborough this week.
Bradley Alfred Terare, 39, was arrested on Sunday. He had been staying with a relative in Maryborough for several weeks.
Terare was due to appear in Ipswich District Court in November to face trial on a count of indecent treatment of a child under 16.
Defence barrister Sarah Laikind said Terare did not attend court because his notification was sent to the wrong address.
Ms Laikind applied for bail, an application which was strongly opposed by prosecutor Senior Constable Steve Lord.
Snr Con Lord said Terare had an extensive criminal history and had breached bail and other court orders in the past.
“He’s shown a lack of ability to comply with any order of the court,” Snr Con Lord said.
Magistrate John Smith refused bail, and ordered that Terare remain in custody until he was re-committed to the Ipswich District Court.
