Alberta says psychiatrist arrested in Edmonton to plead guilty in Australia

EDMONTON — An Australian child psychiatrist charged with child pornography offences in Edmonton has agreed to plead guilty in his home country.

Aaron Voon was arrested at West Edmonton Mall in May after he allegedly used a mobile device to film a boy using a theatre washroom.

Voon was charged with child pornography, possession of child pornography and voyeurism and released on $75,000 bail.

The 41-year-old was arrested again at the airport in Perth and is facing numerous charges there.

Dan Laville, a spokesperson with Alberta Justice, says Voon has agreed to plead guilty to the Alberta charges in Australian court.

He says if Voon doesn't plead guilty, the Crown can consider bringing him back to Canada to face charges here.
