Hal­ton para­medic fac­ing more charges

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

A Hal­ton para­medic from Dun­das has been charged with sex­ual as­sault and voyeurism.

Hal­ton po­lice say they ar­rested 57-year-old Tad Nel­son in con­nec­tion with an al­leged in­ci­dent that hap­pened in­side an am­bu­lance in Oc­to­ber 2015.

He was ex­pected to ap­pear in Mil­ton bail court Fri­day.

In April, Nel­son was also charged with two counts of pos­ses­sion of child pornog­ra­phy in a mas­sive In­ter­net child ex­ploita­tion bust in which po­lice said more than 20 vic­tims were res­cued, in­clud­ing young chil­dren.

At the time, he was placed on leave as the re­gion con­ducted an in­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“The in­di­vid­ual was im­me­di­ately placed on an un­paid leave of ab­sence pend­ing the com­ple­tion of a thor­ough in­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” Hal­ton Re­gion spokesper­son John Winkels said in an email Fri­day when asked if Nel­son was still on leave.

Nel­son was listed as an ad­vanced care para­medic on On­tario’s Sun­shine list in 2015 and 2014.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the al­le­ga­tions is asked to con­tact Det. Const. Matt Cun­ning­ton at 905-465-8978 or Det. Const. Alanda Prescod at 905-465-8977.
