A 74-YEAR-old man was this month extradited from New South Wales to face child sex charges dating back more than 15 years.

Police allege the Coffs Harbour man abused a young girl eight times in Girrawheen during the 1990s. He was charged with eight counts of sexually penetrating a child under 13.

He faced Joondalup Magistrates Court on November 7 and was bailed to reappear in coming months.
