An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to 11.5 months in prison after previously pleading guilty to a charge of possessing child pornography.
Lukas Michael Litten, 35, was sentenced Monday in Abbotsford provincial court. His jail sentence will be followed by two years of probation.
Charges of distributing child porn and breaching his bail conditions were stayed.
Litten was charged last July following an investigation that began in October 2013 based on work conducted by an Abbotsford Police detective.
At the time of Litten’s arrest, Const. Ian MacDonald said the detective had “proactively gone after any and all evidence” on cases involving child sexual abuse for the previous three years or so.
This resulted in police executing a search warrant at Litten’s home on July 24 and seizing several items, including computers, hard drives and storage devices.
Litten was released from custody and was under court-ordered conditions that included not communicating with, or being alone with, anyone under the age of 18 and not possessing or using a device capable of connecting to the internet.
Litten was later charged with breaching one of his conditions.
He pleaded guilty in December to the child porn charge.
