Muirhead child porn case adjourned
A Hobart magistrate says the slow progression of child pornography charges against ABC personality Andy Muirhead has been "embarrassing".
The 34-year-old is facing two charges relating to access and possession of child pornography.
In the Hobart Magistrates Court this morning, the case was adjourned indefinitely.
Muirhead's lawyer Marita Altman argued more time was needed to analyse material, statements and her client's computer.
She suggested that could take less than six weeks.
Prosecutor Ian Arendt did not object to the adjournment and said Commonwealth matters "don't tend to be as straight forward".
But Magistrate Sam Mollard said it was "frankly embarassing" that Muirhead was back in court only to be told that nothing could be done.
He said he could at this stage of proceedings direct Muirhead to enter a plea but as both parties agreed more time was needed, he declined to do so.
