A 28-year-old Lismore will appear in the Lismore Local Court today after allegedly sending a naked picture of himself to a 14-year-old child earlier this month.

Lismore detectives arrested the man this morning at 8.05am and charged him with Use a Carriage Service to Groom a Child Under 16 years for Sex.

Police allege the man sent a photo of himself to the  14-year-old child on 16 February and tried to arrange a meeting so they could engage in a sex act.

Police said the child has shown a parent the messages and photo. The parent has contacted police.

After being arrested he was taken to Lismore policestation where he was charged and refused bail to face the Lismore court today.
