A 20 year old Castlegar man has been charged with Possession of Child Pornography, and Breach of Probation following an investigation earlier this month.
Wheeler Wood is currently serving a 3 year Probationary sentence from a conviction of possessing child pornography in 2010. When Police attended his residence on October 4th to ensure that he was complying with the conditions of that probation, ( not to possess electronic devices that could access the internet), they discovered that he was in breach of these conditions, and also in possession of child pornography images. He was arrested, and remanded in custody until October 10th, where he appeared in court and was released on several conditions to abide by pending his next court appearance of November 27th. His release conditions include not to be in possession of any electronic devices that may access the internet unless supervised, as well as allowing the Police or his Probation Officer access to his residence to monitor compliance with the above conditions. He must also report to his bail supervisor whenever he is directed to.
