Man sentenced for child porn

Sentencing will be pronounced in January against a Stettler man who pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Monday to producing child pornography.

Sentencing will be pronounced in January against a Stettler man who pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Monday to producing child pornography.

Charges including sexual assault, sexual interference and making or printing child pornography were laid in the summer of 2011 after the man’s wife found videos of their daughter on a computer.

Under a court-imposed publication ban, the man cannot be named to protect the identity of his daughter.

The girl was about three at the time the videos were created, said special prosecutor Jennifer Rees while reading a statement of facts as agreed with the Crown and defence.

The mother discovered nine videos, of which three were considered pornographic, said Rees.

Defence counsel Will Willms of Red Deer asked that sentencing be put over to early next year, anticipating that his client will be sent to prison.

Sentencing has been adjourned to Jan. 11 in Red Deer.

The remaining charges will be dealt with at that time, said Rees.
