Four-month jail term for child porn offence

Citizen reported Abbotsford man after seeing images on his phone

Matthew Lustig will serve four months in jail and three years probation for child porn offences.

An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to a four-month jail term to be followed by three years of probation after pleading guilty to a charge of possession of child pornography.

Matthew Jordan Lustig, 24, was sentenced Sept. 12 in Abbotsford provincial court.

The charge resulted after a citizen reported seeing images of child sexual abuse on Lustig’s cellphone. Police then executed a search warrant of Lustig’s residence and seized electronic devices in July 2014.

He pleaded guilty to the child porn charge in March of this year.

Lustig was also charged in July 2014 with sexual interference after a family member alleged that he had inappropriately touched their two-year-old child. However, that charge was stayed in court during his sentencing hearing.

Lustig’s sentence also includes a five-year order that prohibits him from attending a public park, recreation centre, daycare centre or other area where children under the age of 16 are expected to be present and from using an electronic device capable of connecting to the internet.
