Man jailed 90 days for child pornography

WINIPEG (CP) -- A father of two who peddled sadistic videotapes across the country depicting the torture and bondage of women and animals and children performing sex acts, was sentenced to 90 days in jail yesterday.

"I can't tell you how disgusting this is to me", provincial court Judge Frank Aquila told the accused.

Bruno Wischnewski, 39, pleaded guilty to distributing obscene material and possession of child pornography for the purpose of distribution.

Wischnewski, a maintenance worker, will be allowed to serve his time on weekends.

Judge Aquila said he would have given him a longer jail sentence if it wasn't for the joint recommendation by the Crown and defence. Wischnewski could have been jailed 12 years.
