A chiropractor caught accessing and sending child exploitation material had advanced plans to start a ‘wellness clinic’ before he was arrested.

An Adelaide chiropractor was developing a “wellness centre” before he was caught sending child porn, a court has heard.

Warren Jon Young, 43, was identified by the US-based Centre of the Missing and Exploited Children after he used internet messaging application Kik to access and send the material.

A total of 33 images and two videos were exchanged, with three of those involving graphic sexual activity.

The District Court heard on Monday that Young, now of Torrens Park, qualified as a chiropractor before he bought a commercial property in the Adelaide Hills in 2012.

Paul Tothill, for Young, said he intended to create a wellness clinic housing other clinicians and medical professions.

But he said his client sold the building and his business after his arrest in May last year.

“He did not want his fallen reputation to stain the reputation of the other professionals in that block,” he said.

“Such is the shame that this man has experienced, and a significant fall from grace.

“He has chosen to abandon that career and effectively will need to rebuild his life.”

Young has had his Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency registration and Swimming SA memberships cancelled, and the court heard it was unlikely he would work as a chiropractor again.

Mr Tothill asked Judge Adam Kimber to consider a suspended sentence, but prosecutors said that option or a home detention sentence would “not be of appropriate severity”.

Young has pleaded guilty to three counts of accessing child exploitation material and three counts of transmitting the material.

Judge Kimber ordered a home detention report and continued Young’s bail ahead of sentencing in January.
