A Lismore man will stand trial in the District Court next year over the alleged aggravated indecent assault of a 13 year-old girl.
David Roger Adam Orams appeared in Lismore Local Court on Wednesday.
The 32 year-old is charged with two counts of aggravated indecent assault in company, indecently assaulting a person under 16 years-old, and three counts of possessing child abuse material.
The three counts of indecent assault related to incidents which allegedly occurred between June 1, 2015 and February 28, 2016.
When police conducted a search of his residence, court documents revealed officers seized three hard drives they allege contained child abuse material and $12,000 in cash, suspected of being stolen.
Mr Orams also stands accused of failing to comply with his reporting obligations while on bail and having goods in his custody suspected of being stolen.
Following an investigation by detectives, Mr Orams was arrested on November 8, 2016, along with a co-offender, who can’t be named for legal reasons.
He was initially refused bail, but when conditional bail was granted, police allege he failed to comply with the bail by not reporting to police, so bail was revoked.
The court previously heard the matters were set down for a hearing in the local court starting November 1.
On Wednesday, Magistrate David Heilpern ordered Mr Orams to appear in the Lismore District Court on May 7, 2018, where he will be arraigned to stand trial.
Mr Orams remains behind bars until that date.
