A 33-year-old Sudbury man is facing more child pornography charges after being released on bail for similar charges, said Greater Sudbury Police Service.

The man was first arrested in October 2018 following an extensive FBI Sacramento worldwide investigation started in 2016 that involved a large group of people possessing and accessing child pornography using an online storage website.

In 2018, the FBI forwarded information to the Greater Sudbury Police, alerting them to this man’s involvement after the British Columbia Internet Child Exploitation Section of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police identified a man accessing, possessing, and making available child pornography. 

In October of 2018, after an extensive investigation named Project Endure, information gathered from a forensic examination of the computer devices seized revealed the person had distributed child abuse material to a person in the Sudbury region.

On Oct. 17, 2018, Greater Sudbury Police Service’s Internet Child Exploitation Unit executed a search warrant at a Sudbury residence with the assistance of the Greater Sudbury Police Service Tactical Unit and Integrated Crime Team – Intelligence Unit. Computer devices and cellphones were seized that contained child abuse material.

When he was arrested, he was charged with two counts of  possession of child pornography, and one count each of distribution of child pornography, accessing child pornography and making child pornography. He was later released on bail.

On June 23, officers arrested the same man for breaching his bail conditions and is additionally charged with accessing child pornography, possessing child pornography and failing to comply.

He was in bail court on that day to answer to the charges, however, he was remanded into custody. His name will not be released in order to protect the identity of the victims, said police. A publication ban has been ordered, prohibiting any further information from being released.
