Castlegar man facing child porn charges

68 year-old local man has been charged with child-porn related offences.

Castlegar RCMP, in an April 24 press release have reported that a 68 year-old local man has been charged with a pair of child-porn related offences.

Corporal Debbie Postnikoff’s release lists counts of  possession of child pornography, and making available child pornography, after police conducted a search of the man’s home on April 16. His first court appearance is scheduled for May 23, 2014 in Castlegar.

“The man was arrested and later released on several conditions,” the press release describes, “which include not being allowed to possess any electronics that have the capability of accessing the internet, not to have communication with anyone under the age of 16 years-old, not to possess any pornographic material by electronic means, and not to have a functioning internet connection inside his home or access the internet anywhere.”

The communication explains that police had become aware of the illegal activity thanks to information provided by the The BC-Integrated Child Exploitation Unit (BC-ICE) which is responsible for identifying and assisting child victims of sexual abuse, monitoring and prosecuting child pornography distributors and viewers.  The unit uses online undercover officers to identify and apprehend those who target children on the internet for a sexual purpose.

Police point out that files like this one serve as reminders that your activities on the Internet are monitored and that you cannot erase your mark.
