Wilmot man facing ch­ild pornography and firearms charges

On June 8, the RCMP Internet Child Explo­itation (ICE) Unit searched a home in Wi­lmot, with assistance from the RCMP Tech­nological Crime Unit and Annapolis and Kingston RCMP Detachm­ents. David Earl Att­ree was arrested fol­lowing the search, without incident.

 

As a result, David Attree has been charg­ed with Making Child Pornography Availab­le, Possession of Ch­ild Pornography, and Unsafe Storage of a Firearm (2 counts). He was brought before a Judge, released on strict conditions and will appear in Annapolis Royal Court on July 24, 2017.

 

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 at www.cybertip.ca.
