The Ottawa Police Service's Internet Child Exploitation Unit is charging a 40-year-old man who is alleged to have sent explicit material online to a 14-year-old.
The investigation into this case started in August of 2020, after a tip from Peel Regional Police.
A search warrant was executed Tuesday at a residence in Orléans on digital devices belonging to a suspect.
Following the execution of that warrant, Jason Laberge, 40, of Ottawa, has been charged with:
- Making sexual explicit material available to a child
- Luring a child (three counts)
He is scheduled to appear at court on Wednesday.
