Saint-Louis-de-Kent man sentenced to one year in prison following child pornography investigation

The RCMP say a 38-year-old man has been sentenced to one year in prison after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a child pornography investigation.

Félix Richard of Saint-Louis-de-Kent was arrested at a home in the community on August 29th, 2017 after an investigation began early that year.

He was charged with making child pornography available and possession of child pornography.

Police say he pleaded guilty in Moncton Provincial Court last week and received the one year sentence.

In addition to being added to National Sex Offender Registry for life and being required to submit a DNA sample, Richard will have a number of conditions to follow upon his release, including not being near children.
