Man Arrested for Accessing, Possessing and Making Child Porn Available

A Kingston man, 30, has been arrested following a 9 month long child pornography investigation.

The Kingston Police Internet Child Exploitation Unit began an investigation into suspected online sharing of child pornography back in January.

The investigation revealed explicit images and videos of child sexual abuse were being shared locally through an online file sharing program.

In July, detectives were able to identify where the source was coming from and on Wednesday, October 3,  a search warrant was executed at the home of the accused where numerous digital devices and storage media were seized.

A forensic examination revealed further evidence in the form of browsing history and hundreds of digital images and video files believed to meet the Criminal Code definition of child pornography.

The man is charged with make child pornography available, possess child pornography, and access child pornography.
