New Brunswick Pedophiles
« on: November 15, 2011, 12:49:30 AM »
I am starting this thread in hopes that members from New Brunswick will help out by listing those cases in their province.  I am doing Nova Scotia Pedophiles.  Remember to keep digging until you find a news source with their "face" in the article.  I'm sure most of you have noticed that the majority of the media do the report without a picture enclosed.  (that's right - gotta protect the pedos.)

Man gets 5 years in record child porn bust

N.B. man's child porn collection was largest in Canada

Sentencing adjourned in record child porn case The sentence Douglas Hugh Stewart received does not include the 7 ½ months he has already spent behind bars. (CBC)A New Brunswick man has been sentenced to five years in prison in connection with the largest collection of child pornography ever seized in Canada.

Douglas Hugh Stewart, 52, of Moncton earlier pleaded guilty to possessing, accessing and distributing child pornography.

He was sentenced Monday to five years for distribution, 4½ years for accessing and 4½ years for possession. The sentences will be served concurrently, starting immediately.

Judge Anne Dugas-Horsman did not include the 7½ months Stewart has already spent behind bars. His name will be added to the national sex offender registry for life and he will have to provide a DNA sample.

In her decision, Dugas-Horsman said the children in the photos are "countless, nameless, but that does not mean that they don't exist."

Crown prosecutor Karen Lee Lamrock said police found almost six million images and videos of girls — more than 4.5 million pornographic. The others were images of children who were nude, including in bathtubs.

Lamrock said Stewart had been collecting since the 1980s and he looked for new material on a regular basis, and the size of the collection is something never dealt with before in Canadian courts.

Police spent 700 hours going through the images, involving girls as young as two years old.

The Crown had recommended a sentence of five to seven years in prison.

Defence lawyer Maurice Blanchard had requested a four-year term. The defence said Stewart has no criminal record, and co-operated with police from the beginning of the case.

Stewart wants help
Blanchard has also said his client knows he has an illness and wants to get help.

Stewart, who was unmarried, worked as a customer service manager and lived in his father's basement.

His Aug. 19 sentencing was delayed after provincial court heard his psychiatric evaluation had not yet begun due to a shortage of qualified professionals.

The Crown and defence jointly recommended the evaluation to help determine Stewart's risk of reoffending and assist the judge in sentencing.

Stewart was arrested March 23 as part of Operation J Treasures, a joint police investigation into peer-to-peer computer file sharing of child sexual abuse images in New Brunswick.

The Atlantic Region Integrated Technical Crime Unit, Codiac Regional RCMP, Fredericton police, the National Child Exploitation Co-ordination Centre and RCMP districts throughout the province assisted in the investigation, which began in November 2010.

Moncton man gets 5 years for record collection of child sex abuse images

MONCTON, N.B. — A Moncton man was sentenced to five years in prison Monday for owning what is being called the largest collection of child sex-abuse images ever discovered by Canadian police.


Douglas Hugh Stewart, 52, was sentenced by Moncton provincial court Judge Anne Dugas-Horsman, after earlier pleading guilty to possessing, accessing and distributing child pornography. A sentencing hearing was held Oct. 28 and the judge adjourned her decision until Monday.


Dugas-Horsman sentenced him to five years, on top of the seven-and-a-half months Stewart has already spent in custody since his March 23 arrest. He had a bail hearing but was ordered remanded until his matters were dealt with by the court.


In sending the defendant to prison, the judge said the children being victimized in the millions of images and videos he possessed are "countless and nameless." She said the fact the court doesn't know the identities of the children being abused in Stewart's collection is not a mitigating factor.


"These images I've been shown are crime-scene photos," said the judge.


She said while Stewart didn't produce the images, the possession of child pornography is what fuels the illegal industry. If people such as Stewart were not consumers of these images, there would be no demand for people to produce such images, sexually exploiting and abusing children in the process.


Crown prosecutor Karen Lee Lamrock had asked for five to seven years in prison while defence lawyer Maurice Blanchard requested four years. Aside from the five-year sentence, the judge also ordered Stewart to submit a DNA sample and ordered that his name be added to the national sex offender registry for life.


She also banned him from attending any places where children under 16 are normally found, such as parks, playgrounds, schools, daycares and similar places. He's not allowed to work or volunteer with young people and is banned for life from using a computer to communicate with people under 16.


During the sentencing hearing, Lamrock told the court the Operation J Treasures investigation began in July 2010 and involved several police agencies, including the RCMP's Internet Child Exploitation Unit. Police were trying to find those responsible for trading sex-abuse images as part of a peer-to-peer file sharing network online.


An investigator from that unit found an IP address that had sex-abuse images available for sharing and she was able to download images and videos of young people either naked or being sexually abused.


The user was going by the nickname Sam Spade, but police later learned it was Stewart. On March 23, they executed a search warrant on his residence and he admitted they would find child pornography.


Police found more than 4.7 million images and videos containing child sex abuse on computer hard drives, CDs, floppy disks and in magazines. He had another 1.1 million images depicting things such as children on the beach and in the bathtub. He told them he started collecting back in the 1980s and that he was obsessed with collecting the images and constantly searching for new material.


The collection of images and videos was so large it overwhelmed the RCMP's computer storage ability in Fredericton and filled its servers. It took 700 hours to categorize all the images.



The previous largest collection seized in Canada was 1.3 million images and videos in Ontario and that person received three years in prison.

Let's hope that all the evidence the police now have will cause criminals to be removed from society throughout North America and in other countries too.

CORNER BROOK, N.L. (CP) — The former city councillor in Saint John, N.B., who pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault and child pornography faces more charges in Newfoundland.
Topics : RCMP , Inner City Youth Ministry , Saint John , Corner Brook , Mount Moriah
Donnie Snook is to appear June 11 in provincial court in Corner Brook, N.L.

Court documents say the 41-year-old former church pastor is charged with two counts each of sexual assault and sexual interference.

The charges involve one boy, who was less than 14 years of age, when the incidents allegedly occurred in the mid-1990s.

Information sworn before the court on May 24 says the alleged offences happened between Dec. 1, 1995, and April 1, 1996, and between July and August of 1996.

The first two offences are alleged to have happened at or near Mount Moriah, N.L., while the second two were at or near Barachois Pond Park southeast of Stephenville.

Snook pleaded guilty Wednesday in Saint John, N.B., to 46 charges including sexual assault and possessing, distributing and making child pornography. He was arrested in January by the RCMP after police in Saint John and Toronto launched a joint investigation in 2011.

Investigators seized computer equipment and images when Snook’s east-end home was searched.

The RCMP says the New Brunswick crimes began in January 2001 until Snook’s arrest and involved 17 boys, most of them Saint John residents, who were between the ages of five and 15 at the time of the offences.

Snook was elected to city council in 2008 and was known for his work with the Inner City Youth Ministry, providing sports programs, mentoring and school lunch programs. He was executive director of the youth ministry for 14 years.

His crimes shocked the community. Crown prosecutor Karen Lee Lamrock said she’d never dealt with a similar case involving so many victims.

Snook is due back in court in Saint John on June 25 to set a date for sentencing.  see his picture below:
