Mountie facing child porn charges
A Mountie posted in a remote fly-in community in northern Saskatchewan has been charged with accessing and possessing child pornography.
RCMP said they began investigating the officer stationed in Fond-du-Lac in September.
Staff Sgt. Ron Weir of the province’s Internet Exploitation Unit said officers had been conducting an internal police investigation into file-sharing and were tracing IP addresses when they identified the fellow Mountie as a suspect.
Const. Aiden Arthur Pratchett, 31, joined the force in 2010 and served in the town of Porcupine Plain before he was transferred to Fond-du-Lac.
