CORNWALL – A local man will be spending six months in jail after being convicted of having and accessing child pornography.

Travis Wall, 29, was sentenced last week in a Cornwall court on one count of accessing and one count of possessing child pornography.

In addition to the sentence, he will be on probation for two and a half years (30 months).

He’s also under an order, commonly referred to as a parks order, for 15 years where Wall is not allowed to attend places like public parks, swimming areas or school playgrounds where people under the age of 16 may be present.

Wall also had to submit a sample of his DNA to the court and is on the national sex offender registry for the rest of his life.

Wall was arrested in May 2020 following an investigation by the Cornwall Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit. The case had been referred to them by the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Center.

Police seized “several electronic devices” during a search warrant, Cornwall police spokeswoman Stephanie MacRae said at the time.
