Man faces child pornography charges

A Rawdon man is facing child pornography charges after an investigation by the RCMP’s Provincial Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit.

Yesterday, after a two month investigation, the RCMP Provincial ICE Unit, with assistance from the RCMP Technological Crime Unit and Windsor District RCMP, executed a search warrant at a residence in Rawdon. As a result, 58-year-old Steven Robert Harten was arrested at his residence yesterday without incident and has been charged with Accessing Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography. He was released from custody on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Windsor Provincial Court on September 12, 2016.

In Nova Scotia it is mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Child and Family Services Act. The RCMP encourages citizens to be a voice for children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada’s national tip line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.
