A child pornography investigation in Red Deer has led to eight charges against 54 year old Stuart Peter Hunt.
The investigation was launched earlier this month when the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre was notified about a social media user allegedly uploading child pornography.
“I don’t want to provide the exact social media application that was being used because that could eliminate or narrow the scope of our investigation, but there’s many online that you could download and share child pornography,” Tucker said.
Charges have been laid in relation to crimes allegedly committed against one victim that “took place fairly recently,” Tucker said.
“I don’t want to provide the exact social media application that was being used…but there’s many online that you could download and share child pornography.”
Several victims have already been identified, but police believe there could be more, as the offences could date back as far as 20 years.
