Flin Flon man sentenced on child pornography charges

A Flin Flon man has been sentenced after an RCMP child pornography investigation last year.

The man was arrested in June 2017 after the RCMP National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre (NCECC) was told a northern Manitoba-based IP address was connected to child pornography uploaded to Google+ Images. RCMP tracked the IP address back to a home in Flin Flon.

After members of the Manitoba RCMP Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) searched the home, the man was arrested. Later, he pleaded guilty to possessing and accessing child pornography, as well as a probation breach for possessing a device that could connect to the internet.

The man was sentenced to two years less a day for the offences and will have to register as a sex offender for the next two decades under the Sex Offender Information Registration Act.

The Flin Flonner is the second person to recently be charged with child pornography offences.

In October, a Churchill man pled guilty to charges of child pornography, voyeurism and sexual assault. He will serve two years less a day for the sexual assault, as well as a six-month sentence for the voyeurism offence.
