A jury in Broome has found a man guilty of using cannabis and cigarettes to bribe young girls into giving him sexual favours.

Bobby Neil Bowles was yesterday convicted of sexual penetration and indecent dealing with a child under 13, after a three-day trial in Broome District Court.

The Court heard Bowles’ home, located near the Broome hospital, was in 2007 known among local children as a place they could get drugs in exchange for sex.

The defence argued the main witness, who was 12 years old at the time of the offences, was pressured into making up her testimony.

Bowles has been remanded in custody, to be sentenced in September.
