CORNWALL – A three-day trial has been set for a Cornwall man accused of having child pornography in his possession.

Jeffrey Levesque, 58, was arrested in May 2020 after an investigation by the Cornwall Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit.

Court records show the trial is set for three days – two days in early February 2022 and one day in early March 2022.

Before that, there will be a court appearance in December to confirm whether the trail will proceed.

If convicted, he could spend six months to 10 years in prison depending on how the Crown elects to prosecute the case. Child pornography possession is a hybrid offence, meaning it can be tried as a less serious summary offence or a more serious indictable offence.
