A Cape Breton man has been charged with possessing child pornography after his home was searched by Nova Scotia RCMP in fall of 2019.
James Darren Peters, who is already facing a charge of sexual assault, has been released by police on strict conditions and is expected to appear in the Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court on June 29.
The 49-year-old from Lower L’Ardoise was arrested on Monday.
“Pursuant to the sexual assault allegations, RCMP investigators searched the suspect’s home on October 1, 2019 and seized his electronic devices,” said a statement from the Mounties released on Wednesday.
“The search of the devices has recently been completed and child pornography was found on them.”
