Excerpts from the Article:
The identity of a second South Australian man allegedly involved in producing and possessing child exploitation material has been revealed.
Mr Berry faces several charges, including producing, possessing, and disseminating child exploitation material and indecent filming.
He and Benjamin Waters, 38, were arrested last month by the South Australian Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team (JACET) following an investigation by SA Police and the Australian Federal Police (AFP). Mr Waters, who worked as a staffer for state Labor MP Nat Cook, had his employment terminated and was expelled from the party after his alleged offending was revealed.
Mr Waters has been charged with one count of producing child abuse material through a carriage service and four counts of possessing child exploitation material. He will remain in custody until a mental health assessment is carried out.
Police prosecutors told the court Mr Berry had engaged in sexually explicit communication with another person online, and is alleged to have sent two URL links to cloud storage accounts containing child exploitation material.
The court heard police searched his Salisbury Park home where they found covert cameras and video files of adults bathing and children in various states of undress at his home.
The police prosecutor — who appeared via video link from Port Lincoln — told the court investigators needed to extradite and analyse e-crime material which would take six months.
Mr Berry’s lawyer applied for a suppression order on his identity but prosecutors opposed that, telling the court they had not identified the victims and identifying the man would help their investigation.
Mr Berry made no application for bail and has been remanded in custody. The matter will return to court in November.
