A Geraldton man accused of electronically exposing a child to indecent content has appeared in court.

Lance Mitchell Hanson appeared in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court on Thursday for legal advice on one charge of using electronic communication to expose a child under 16 years to indecent matter.

The offence is alleged to have occurred in Geraldton on May 17 this year and the 35-year-old man has not yet entered a plea.

Mr Hanson’s lawyer requested a four-week adjournment to speak with his client regarding a interview he completed with police.

Acting Magistrate Tanya Watt agreed to the request, extending his bail in the same terms. Mr Hanson will reappear in court on September 29.
