A 45-year-old Whitehorse man has been charged with child pornography offences.

Curt Butler faces charges including arranging to commit sexual exploitation of a child, distributing child pornography and possession of child pornography; plus two firearm-related crimes.

Yukon RCMP began their investigation after receiving information from British Columbia’s Integrated Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit earlier this month. “Subsequent to the investigation, a search warrant was executed at Mr. Butler’s residence and several items were seized including electronics and electronic media storage devices,” states a news release.

Butler appeared before a justice of the peace last week and was released on several conditions. They include: not to attend schools, pools, parks, playgrounds or other places where persons under the age of 18 are likely to congregate; no contact with persons under the age of 18 without a person 25 years or older present; and, not to possess computers or other electronic devices capable of accessing the Internet.

At this point, police say there is no indication that any children from the Yukon are involved.
