VIDEO: Windsor Man Pleads Guilty to Child Porn Offences

A Windsor man has pleaded guilty to several child porn-related offences.

William Stevenson, 46, pleaded guilty to nine counts of possession, accessing and distributing child porn along with making available sexual explicit videos to a person believed to be under the age of 16 to facilitate an offence.

He had originally been charged with 28 counts following his arrest in July 2018.

Police seized 49 photos and 15 videos.  

Stevenson used a chatroom to gain access to the materials and unknowingly, chatted with an uncover police officer. 

Court heard disturbing details of what was contained in the videos showing boys and girls, as young as 5-8 years old, being sexually assaulted.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for August.

Stevenson does not have a criminal record and there is not a joint submission for sentencing between the crown and defence.

The crown indicates she is looking for a "significant jail sentence" but wouldn't elaborate.
