Two men appeared in court Tuesday, charged in separate cases relating to child pornography.

Michell Garcia-Gambao is charged with possessing more than 800 indecent images of children. Eight charges, including an allegation of indecent assault and of distributing an indecent photograph of a child via Whatsapp messenger service, were read to Garcia-Gambao when he appeared in Summary Court via video link.

He spoke briefly to indicate his desire to face the charges in Grand Court, but he did not enter a plea to any of the charges.

He faces one count of indecent assault of a female, six charges relating to possession of indecent images of a child and one charge relating to distributing or showing indecent images.

In the second case, Trevorne Daley, who has also been charged on multiple counts of possession of child pornography, appeared briefly during Tuesday’s Summary Court hearing.

Daley’s case was put off until July 19 to allow him time to consult with his new attorney.
