Child rape video charge and delay

POLICE say they need at least three months to search computers belonging to a Gold Coast man who has been charged with possessing a child rape video.

Matthew Wayne Boswell, 42, of Main Beach, is one of 16 Australians - half of them Queenslanders - busted in a recent global crackdown on child sex exploitation.

Boswell was due to face Southport magistrates Court yesterday on child exploitation charges, his first court date since his arrest on May 7.

But his lawyer, Michael Purcell, asked the court to excuse his client who is currently out on bail.

He noted the police have requested a three month adjournment in the matter, in order to search Boswell's computers and said he did not oppose the delay.

Boswell's case has been adjourned until September 1.
