Child porn, voyeurism case called to court

The Compass - - EDITORIAL -

A man from Trin­ity Bay who al­legedly filmed and took photos of an un­der­age fe­male now has a lawyer in place.

The case of the ac­cused, who is in his 30s and can­not be iden­ti­fied due to a pub­li­ca­tion ban, was called at Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court last Wed­nes­day, June 17. He was not present but de­fence lawyer Doug Moores ap­peared on his be­half.

The man is fac­ing one count of pos­sess­ing child pornog­ra­phy and two counts of un­law­fully ob­serv­ing or mak­ing a vis­ual record­ing of a per­son where there is a rea­son­able ex­pec­ta­tion of pri­vacy. He was ar­rested last month af­ter Whit­bourne RCMP al­legedly found a mem­ory card he owned con­tain­ing in­crim­i­nat­ing videos and photos. He was re­leased from cus­tody on a num­ber of con­di­tions the day af­ter his ar­rest.

On Wed­nes­day, Moores told Judge Jac­que­line Brazil he is still wait­ing to re­ceive some of the ev­i­dence and re­quested the case be set over for a plea date. Brazil agreed to have the mat­ter re­turn to court July 8.
