Police charge man for child pornography offences

Police have charged a Halifax man for child pornography offences that occurred in 2017 and 2018.

On January 8, 2019 police began an investigation after receiving information that a Halifax Man was communicating with a woman located in another province in relation to creating child pornography.

On January 10 investigators in the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit, of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division conducted a search of an address on Caxton Close in Halifax. Police seized several electronic devices for forensic analysis. The suspect was arrested at a separate address in Halifax a short time later.

Thirty-six-year-old Julien Dugas of Halifax is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial court today to face the following charges:

  • Section 163.1(4) of the Criminal Code – Possession of Child Pornography
  • Section 163.1(3) of the Criminal Code – Distribution of Child Pornography
  • Section 172.2(1)(b) Making Arrangement for a Sexual Offence Against Child (Sexual Assault)
  • Section 171.1(1)(b) Making Sexually Explicit Material Available to a Child (images)

Police remind citizens that it is mandatory in Nova Scotia to report suspected child pornography. Police ask anyone with information on child pornography to call police at 902-490-5020 or by using cybertip, Canada’s National Tip Line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children, at www.cybertip.ca.
