ACA Reporter Ben McCormack Has Been Rushed To Hospital
Reports are flooding in that suspended A Current Affair reporter Ben McCormack has been hospitalised and will be getting treatment ‘for a while’.
Last week, McCormack made headlines when he was charged with child pornography after raids on both his Sydney home and the ACA offices at the Nine Network.
Police will allege McCormack engaged in explicit conversations about children with an adult male and discussed child pornography. He was charged with using a carriage service for child pornography material.
His lawyer Sam Macedone confirmed to news.com.au that McCormack was in hospital, and missed reporting to Redfern Police Station as part of his strict bail conditions.
“My instructions are he went to hospital [today], he’ll probably be there a while. He is being assessed.”
Macedone, his lawyer, would not say what he was being assessed for and allegedly contacted police to advise them his client would not be making the scheduled visit.
“He can’t make them if he is in hospital,” he said, adding he was seeking a hearing on Wednesday seeking an urgent variation in the bail conditions.
