CORNWALL – Child pornography charges have been dropped against a man from North Glengarry.

Phillip Frances May, 51, of Green Valley was to be sentenced in a Cornwall court on Oct. 26 after being charged with possession and accessing child pornography.

May was found dead in his home Oct. 16, 2017.

He had been among 80 people charged in April 2016 in a massive province-wide online child pornography bust.

Another person charged in the O.P.P.’s Provincial Strategy to Protect Children From Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet – Jean Guy Beauvais of Cornwall – will be going to trial in June 2018.
