A 22-year-old man was sentenced to 360 days in prison Wednesday in provincial court at Grand Bank for possessing and distributing child pornography.
The RCMP investigation started in 2011 as the result of a report that originated with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
The report identified a social networking website with explicit photos of a young teenage girl.
The RCMP investigation identified the male and charges were laid.
The RCMP Internet Child Exploitation Unit encourages parents to be involved in their child's activities on the Internet and remind young people to be aware of what photos they are sharing with their friends.
