He was granted conditional bail to appear at Bathurst Local Court next month.
The new charges come several months after he was charged with accessory to the alleged murder of two-year-old Tillie Craig in 1987.
He was initially arrested at a rural property at Porters Retreat, near Oberon.
In May, Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty claimed the property was a "headquarters for the Ministry of God cult" and Tillie and her mother were residing there.
Tillie's mother, Ellen Craig, was arrested in New Zealand earlier this year and extradited to NSW.
