A Revelstoke man pleaded guilty to multiple child sex offences in court last week.

The man, who cannot be named due to a publication ban in place to protect any victims and witnesses, pleaded guilty to accessing child pornography, touching a minor for sexual purposes and production of a controlled substance.

The guilty pleas were entered by his lawyer Melissa Klages in court on Thursday, Jan. 8.

The man was arrested in June as part of Operation Snapshot III, a province-wide bust of 11 men by the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre.

The circumstances behind his arrest have yet to be made public. They will likely be read out at the man’s sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.

Klages indicated at a court hearing in August that the man would be pleading guilty, however the plea was delayed while the case was investigated and evidence was disclosed.

Sentencing will follow the preparation of pre-sentencing and psychiatric reports.
