- Thousands of child exploitation photos and videos are uploaded in Alberta daily.
- The public can submit tips at www.cybertip.ca, a national website for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children.
Another of the accused men, Paul David Marshall (48) of Lethbridge, pleaded guilty this week to one count of possession of child pornography, and was sentenced to six months in jail (also according to the Lethbridge Herald).
Operation Ice Storm targeted individuals sharing child pornography images and videos across a variety of peer-to-peer file sharing networks. The proactive investigation resulted in the arrest of 10 offenders, ranging in age from 22 to 65, with charges of possessing, accessing, and making available child pornography being laid. Over 330 computers and electronic devices were seized, and at the time investigators estimated they could contain thousands of child pornography photos and videos.
