· Five counts of Sexual Penetration of a Child over 13 years and under 16 years;
· Five counts of Indecent Dealing with a Child over 13 years and under 16 years;
· Two counts of Procure a Child over 13 years and under 16 years to do an Indecent Act; and
· One count of Persistent Sexual Conduct with a Child under 16 years.

The man will appear before Perth Magistrate's Court today.
