Stanstead Town­ship man ar­rested for child porn

Sherbrooke Record - - COLUMNIST - Record Staff

Sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of chil­dren on the In­ter­net In­ves­ti­ga­tors from the Sûreté du Québec ar­rested a man from Stanstead Town­ship in con­nec­tion with child pornog­ra­phy.

Nor­mand Brouil­lard, 69, ap­peared in court Tues­day in Sher­brooke to face charges of pos­ses­sion, dis­tri­bu­tion, and ac­cess­ing child pornog­ra­phy.

Of­fi­cers con­ducted a search of the sus­pect's home and seized com­puter equip­ment for anal­y­sis.

The SQ’S Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Branch has spe­cial­ized in­ves­ti­ga­tion pro­jects and ex­perts in cy­ber­crime and the sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of chil­dren. These in­ves­ti­ga­tors work closely with the Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice and mu­nic­i­pal po­lice of­fi­cers. Since the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pro­vin­cial strat­egy in the fight against the sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of chil­dren in 2012, nearly 500 ar­rests have been made and sev­eral hun­dred vic­tims have been iden­ti­fied.
