Man charged with child pornography offences
A local man has been charged with child pornography offences as part of Kingston Police’s ongoing monitoring of an online filesharing network.
The Kingston Police Internet Child Exploitation Unit is involved in the ongoing project to detect and monitor file-sharing networks known to be associated with child pornography. In November, the unit arrested four men as part of the project.
The case started on Oct. 16, when a computer connected to a filesharing network was matched to a local IP address, and suspected child pornography digital files were captured from the computer. On Nov. 19, local detectives received judicial authorization to identify the subscriber of the internet service and a Kingston address was listed.
On Wednesday, a search warrant was executed at the subscriber’s residence. Multiple digital devices and data storage media were seized at the address. An initial forensic examination revealed evidence of digital files believed to meet the Criminal Code definition of child pornography. The examination of the files continues, police said.
A man, and accused owner of the devices, was present during the warrant execution and was subsequently arrested.
A 33-year-old local man was charged by police with making child pornography available, possessing child pornography, and accessing child pornography.
