Marlborough police have charged a man they say has been reposting photos of teenage girls on adult websites.

Police say a number of young women's pictures have been taken from social media sites, doctored with sexually explicit additions and reposted to adult sites.

The 56-year-old Nelson man has been charged with child exploitation, possessing objectionable material and causing digital harm. He's due to appear in court next week.
