On 8 October 2015, Alan Murphy, believed to be an Australian citizen, was extradited from Australia to the United Kingdom, to face allegations of historic sexual offences against two girls in Eastbourne, East Sussex. A Sussex Police press report is here.
Mr Murphy was set to appear in custody at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on 9 October 2015, charged with two indecent assaults and one offence of incitement to gross indecency, committed on a girl aged between 11 and 13, between 1980 and 1984. He faced a further charge of indecent assault on another girl, aged 14, between 1987 and 1989.
The alleged offences were reported to Sussex Police in 2008 and Mr Murphy was arrested at his home in Mango Hill, in Queensland, by Queensland Police, in July 2014. Mr Murphy was held in custody in Brisbane prior to his extradition.
