Magpies icon to fight child sex charges

A Collingwood AFL icon and one of the team’s most-recognised fans will fight historical charges of sexual offences laid against him, his lawyer has said.

Magpies enthusiast Jeffrey “Joffa” Corfe was arrested earlier this year and charged with two counts of sexual penetration of a minor.

During a brief appearance before Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday, Mr Corfe’s lawyer Louis Dean said an issue had been raised over the identification of his client as the alleged offender.

Mr Corfe, who lives in Redbank Plains in Queensland, will return to court on December 8 for a contested committal hearing.

Police allege Mr Corfe twice sexually abused a boy, who was under the age of 16, in January 2005 in Melbourne.
