Sentenced on breaching bail conditions after child porn charges

An Abbotsford man who previously served a jail term for possessing child pornography has received an additional seven days in prison for breaching his bail conditions.

Sean Leblanc, 23, was sentenced last Friday in Abbotsford provincial court. He was initially charged with three counts of breach, but two of the charges were stayed.

Leblanc was released from prison on bail after being charged with three offences in May 2013: importing/distributing child porn, luring a child under the age of 16 and possessing child porn.

The conditions of his bail included that he not possess any device that could connect to the internet and that he not attend parks, daycares, community centres or other places where a person under 16 could be present.

He was charged with breaching those conditions in August 2013 after he was found in possession of a cellphone and was located by police in the parking lot of a church that also runs a daycare facility.

Before the breach charges were dealt with in court, Leblanc was sentenced on the child pornography offences, receiving a 45-day jail sentence in February of this year on the possession charge. The other two charges were stayed.
