court

A former president of the Better Business Bureau of Atlantic Canada has pleaded guilty to making, printing, publishing or possessing child pornography.

A Public Prosecution Service spokesperson says 48-year-old Peter Moorhouse changed his plea from not guilty during a court appearance today in Shubenacadie provincial court.

He also pleaded guilty to making arrangements with a person to commit an offence with respect to a person under the age of 16 years.

The BBB fired Moorhouse after he was charged last year as a result of an investigation sparked by the search of a home in Enfield that led to another man being charged with sexual interference and making child pornography.
