A 60-year-old man has been accused of five sexual offences, including making an pornographic image of a child.
Michael Yorke, of High Street, Combe Martin, appeared before North Devon Magistrates’ Court today.
He has been charged with four breaches of a sexual offences prevention order which was made by Exeter Crown Court in 2011.
The breaches include four counts of accessing adult pornography websites and downloading pornographic images.
One count between August 23 2011 and November 7 2012, another between May 5 and November 11 2012, and two between October 19 and 24 2012.
Yorke has also been charged with making an indecent image of a child between August 23 and November 11 2012.
The defendant only spoke to confirm his name and address to the magistrates. No pleas were taken.
The case has been committed to Exeter Crown Court where the case will be heard on October 18.
