A 71-year-old man will appear in court on 95 charges of historical sexual offending against 10 boys.

Police are seeking more information about Leonard James Mulholland, from Palmerston, after his initial appearance in Dunedin District Court in December.

He will reappear in Oamaru District Court on January 29 on the charges, which related to alleged indecent assaults between 1980 and 2010 in Dunedin and Otago when he was working as a washing machine repairer serviceman in Dunedin, police said.

Anyone with information can contact Detective Warren Duncan of Oamaru police on 03 433 1400 or their local police station.
