A man convicted last year of child pornography offences in southern Ontario is facing new charges in Sudbury.

In a release Wednesday, Greater Sudbury Police said the unidentified 44-year-old was arrested after the police's cyber crime unit discovered him in the company of someone under age 16 who wasn't accompanied by a parent or guardian.

He had been convicted in June 2017 of possession of and accessing child pornography, police said in the release.

“He was ordered to abide by conditions of a probation order, as well as, section 161 Prohibition Order,” the release said.

He is charged with two counts of failing to comply with his probation orders and one for failing to comply with a Section 161 Order of the Criminal Code of Canada.

“The man was released on a Promise to Appear with an undertaking to attend court on July 18,” the release said. “His name cannot be released at this time as the information has not yet been sworn to through the court process.”

The Greater Sudbury Police Service cyber crime unit is part of the Ontario Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet, which has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and the Ministry of the Attorney General.
