Lindsay Man Facing Child Pornography Charges In Child Sexual Exploitation Investigation

KAWARTHA LAKES-The OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit, Digital Forensics Unit and City of Kawartha Lakes detachment members have arrested and charged a resident following a child sexual exploitation investigation.

Police executed a search warrant in Lindsay on March 9th and say they seized a number of electronic devices. As a result of this investigation, Peter Gordon White, 50 years of age, was arrested and charged with the following Criminal Code offences:

  • Possession of Child Pornography contrary to section 163.1(4) of the Criminal Code
  • Making Child Pornography Available, contrary to section 163.1(3) of the Criminal Code

The accused is scheduled to attend a bail hearing on March 9, 2023 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Lindsay, On.

Children are our most valuable and precious members of society. Many victims of child sexual abuse are so young that they cannot tell their story. Every time an image or video depicting that abuse is shared, that child is re-victimized.

“The OPP will continue to aggressively identify and pursue individuals who use technology to exploit children. Parents are reminded to take a proactive approach to help protect their children from online sexual exploitation by speaking with their children regarding Internet safety. Parents can find resources to assist them at cybertip.ca or protectchildren.ca.” said the OPP in a press release.

If you have information regarding internet child exploitation and wish to provide information anonymously you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or ontariocrimestoppers.ca. Reporting information may also be made on the internet through cybertip.ca.
