CENTRAL COAST MAN CHARGED WITH CHILD EXPLOITATION

A Central Coast man has faced court on child exploitation charges.

Police allege the 55-year-old believed he was speaking with the mother of a nine year old girl, and engaged in explicit conversations about the child.

He was arrested at a home near The Entrance late last month and charged with a string of offences.

The man has been refused bail and will front a Wyong magistrate again in February.
