An American who tried to cross into Canada through Manitoba with child pornography last summer has been sentenced in a Winnipeg court.
It is the longest term handed down for a child porn smuggling case in the province.
Canadian Border Service Agency Prairie Regional Communications officer, Jacqueline Callin says on March 1st Robert Roske of Minnesota received a sentence of two and a half years. Callin says it is the longest sentence handed down to date in a CBSA child porn smuggling case.
Roske will serve his sentence in Manitoba.
Callin says Border services at the Sprague crossing picked up on indicators that they should examine his electronics. She adds it’s something the officers regularly look for at the point of entry into Canada.
