Children’s magician jailed for child porn
WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg man who worked as a children’s entertainer doing magic shows has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.
Dan Kamenicky, also known as Dan the Magic Man, was charged with making and distributing child porn last year.
He also had worked as an educational assistant with the Louis Riel School Division.
With time served, Kamenicky has 40 months left in his sentence. Judge Sidney Lerner also banned him for life from playgrounds, schools and community centres.
Some of the images Kamenicky took were of children he worked with at school.
