Swidzinski came to the attention of Ontario police last summer, when they were investigating child pornography links posted in a chat room by someone with a Sask Tel IP address.
Of the 127 images in the folder, 64 were designated as child pornography involving adult males and young female children, Crown prosecutor Lana Morelli said in court.
The Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit investigated and obtained an IP address in Saskatoon. 20, officers conducted a search at the address, where Swidzinski lived with his family, and Swidzinski quickly admitted he was the one who had posted the child pornography links online.
Officers also found videos of Swidzinski web chatting with young females, and they found images and videos that “pointed to the sexual deviance of the accused,” she said.
Defence lawyer Lisa Watson said Swidzinski denied having a sexual interest in the material, but found himself drawn into the chat room — where people would find disturbing material and post it for others — when he was about 14 or 15 years old.
