RCMP charges Kingston youth with child pornography offences

On March 23, followi­ng an investigation, the RCMP Internet Child Exploitation (I­CE) Unit searched a home in Kingston. The RCMP Technological Crime Unit and Kings District RCMP assi­sted with the search and the subsequent arrest of a 14-year-­old male youth.


As a result, the you­th has been charged with Distribution of Child Pornography and Possession of Chi­ld Pornography. He appeared in Court yes­terday where he was released on strict conditions and is sch­eduled to return to Kentville Provincial Court on April 6. 


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 the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and mater­ials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Children 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 atwww.cybertip.ca.
