A South Surrey man who pleaded guilty last year to possessing child pornography will have to wait to learn what the admission will cost him.
A sentencing hearing for Douglas Wayne Bowers was to take place in Surrey Provincial Court May 5, but was adjourned until Sept. 23.
Bowers was arrested and charged in 2009 after an investigation by the RCMP's Integrated Child Exploitation team led police to a man they described as "another prolific distributor of child sexual abuse images and video online."
While a teenaged B.C.victim was identified, police found no indication Bowers was involved in the production of child pornography.
Last December, Bowers pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography. He told Peace Arch News the images were inadvertently downloaded when he accessed adult-pornography websites.
