Young perv caught in the act

HAMILTON -- A 15 year old Flamborough youth awaits sentencing after being charged in youth court with possession of child pornography in the form of computerized graphics. Hamilton-Wentworth police raided the boy's home after they were tipped off by US customs officers that an Ontario resident was sending child porn over the border via the Internet. His computer was seized and used as evidence.

Sentencing will be held on October 16, and due to good marks in school and what his lawyer referred to as an "essentially good character", the boy will likely only get probation.
