The prevalence of computers throughout the Toronto area has created crimes that at one time did not exist. While there are multiple crimes that could involve the use of a computer, one realm in which they have had a big impact is sex crimes. A 24-year-old man was recently arrested and charged with several sex crimes in conjunction with receiving photos and videos of teen girls via the computer.Specifically, the man is charged with:
- Two counts of luring a child under 16
- Three counts of counselling to commit the offence of making child pornography
- Two counts of making child pornography
- Two counts of possession child pornography
- Two counts of extortion.
