Child porn, voyeurism case called to court
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.
