Cape Breton man facing child porn charges

A Cape Breton man is facing multiple charges, including luring a child, extortion and sexual interference.

RCMP in Richmond County said they learned of allegations against 19-year-old Seth Boudreau in December.

An investigation led them to believe Boudreau had sexual contact with minors and created and distributed child pornography, Nova Scotia RCMP said in a news release.

They have charged Boudreau, who is from French Cove, with possessing child pornography, sexual interference and two counts each of child luring, extortion and "making sexually explicit material available to child."

Police said the offences involve children in their teens, and they believe there may be more victims.

Investigators "are actively seeking other victims and they understand sometimes it could be difficult for victims to come forward, especially in cases like this," said RCMP Const. Dominic Laflamme.

"We just want to make sure that people will come forward if they've been a victim, and if people are aware of any other information."

Boudreau was arrested on Dec. 28 and was released on conditions. He is scheduled to appear in a Port Hawkesbury court in April.

RCMP are asking anyone with information about the case to call them at (902) 535-2002. People can also submit information anonymously by calling Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by submitting a secure tip online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
