An elderly Hamilton man faces 31 charges for the alleged rape and indecent assault of a young female family member.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim, made a brief appearance in Hamilton District Court this morning where further indecent assault charges were laid.

The charges relate to sexual offending carried out between January 1, 1969 and December 31, 1982 when the victim was aged between seven and 20.

The man is now aged in his 80s.

He will reappear in court in April.
