FORMER NSW government minister Milton Orkopoulos, who is facing more than 50 charges of child sex and drug offences, has been released on bail.

Lawyers for Orkopoulos, 49, of Belmont North, made the bail application in Newcastle Local Court today.

He is expected to be released from Sydney's Long Bay jail later today.

Orkopoulos was dumped by the Labor Party and resigned from state parliament last year after being charged with supplying drugs to two teenage boys and using government funds to pay one of them for sex.

Last month he was charged with further counts of homosexual intercourse with a child, supplying a prohibited drug, and indecent assault.
