Richard Cull previously pleaded guilty to one of three charges he faced

An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to one year in prison after previously pleading guilty to one of the three child porn offences with which he was charged last summer.

Richard Cull was sentenced May 9 in Abbotsford provincial court on a charge of possession of child pornography. His prison term will be followed by two years of probation.

His two other charges – importing/distributing child porn and accessing child porn – were stayed at sentencing.

Police previously said that Cull came to their attention after they received information from the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Centre that an Abbotsford resident had accessed images of child sexual abuse.

A search warrant was then executed on June 8, 2018 at Cull’s central Abbotsford residence, where police seized electronic devices.

Those devices were then analyzed, and images of child sexual abuse were found.

Cull was subsequently arrested and charged.
