A FORMER South Australian priest has pleaded guilty to child sex charges after being extradited from Indonesia.

Charles Barnett, 68, was arrested in February following a request from Australian authorities, and the South Jakarta District Court approved his extradition in April.

Today, in the Adelaide Magistrates Court, Barnett admitted to three counts of indecent assault against a person between 1977 and 1982 at Crystal Brook and Port Pirie.

He pleaded not guilty to six other charges of unlawful sexual intercourse and indecent assault at Port Pirie, Crystal Brook, Whyalla and Black Forest between 1981 and 1994.

Magistrate Alfio Grasso remanded him in custody to next appear in court in October.
