Montreal blogger faces 17 child porn, sexual touching charges

A Montreal blogger was arrested Monday on charges related to child pornography and sexually touching minors.

Sgt. Claude Denis of the Sûreté du Québec said officers arrested the 21-year-old man outside the Montreal courthouse on Monday afternoon while he was there for a separate case.

“Police had an arrest warrant against him issued earlier, which included 17 charges for sexual contact with persons under the age of 16 [and] for producing, possessing and accessing child pornography,” Denis said.

The man is expected to be charged at the Montreal courthouse Wednesday afternoon.
