Child-porn trial set for April
A White Rock man charged a year ago in connection with the April 2010 discovery of child pornography on a home computer is set to go to trial on the charges next April.
Four days (April 23-26) have been set to hear the case against Garth Steeves, 48.
Steeves was charged following a year-long investigation that was conducted in conjunction with Toronto police and the RCMP’s Integrated Child Exploitation Unit.
ICE officers, along with members of the RCMP Technological Crime Unit, searched a White Rock home April 28, 2010. During the search, two computers were seized; child pornography was found on one, police said at the time. According to an online court database, Steeves is charged with accessing child pornography, making or publishing child pornography and importing or distributing child pornography.
