A man has been extradited from Queensland to NSW on two warrants outstanding for 21 years for alleged historic child sex offences.
The warrants date to 1999 and relate to a 1998 investigation into allegations a young girl - then aged between 13 and 14 - had been sexually abused by a man known to her.
In June last year, detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad acting on new information tried to find the man but were unsuccessful.
Then earlier this year, detectives received information the man, now aged 44, was living interstate.
He was arrested by Queensland police on June 18.
The Kallangur man appeared Brisbane Magistrates Court, where NSW detectives were granted his extradition to NSW.
He was charged with the outstanding warrants for child sex offences along with nine additional offences, including six counts of aggravated indecent assault, four counts of sexual intercourse with a person 10 or over and under 16 years, and detaining for advantage.
The man was refused bail after appearing in Lismore Local Court on June 19 and will reappear in Coffs Harbour Local Court on Tuesday.
