Gareth ThomasAlbany Advertiser

A 77-year-old Albany man accused of historic child sex offences has been granted changes in his bail conditions to allow him to travel interstate.

The Albany Magistrates Court today heard an application by Kenneth Ernest Norman to change his bail conditions to allow him to travel to Sydney for a wedding.

Child abuse squad detectives originally charged Mr Norman as a result of their investigation, alleging he sexually assaulted three girls under the age of 14, who were known to him, between 1970 and 1978.

Mr Norman is facing 23 charges relating to the sexual assault minors and has a series of stringent bail conditions already in place.

Mr Norman plans to travel to Sydney by train on February 12 and return by plane on February 22 but did not produce a return airfare ticket to the court.

Mr Norman was told he needed to present his return ticket to the Albany police station before his departure.
