The son of Member for Page Janelle Saffin has been charged with possessing child pornography.

Police said that computer and electronic equipment seized from the Lismore Heights home of Ned Saffin, 23, in March allegedly were found to contain ‘offensive images’.

Detectives yesterday charged Saffin with three counts of possessing child pornography.

Ms Saffin issued a statement today, saying: “I love my son. I know he has been charged. As the matter is before the court, I won’t be making any further comment.”

Saffin has been granted bail and is due to face Lismore Local Court on August 25.
