A Winnipeg youth support worker is facing charges after allegedly inadvertently texting a colleague a photo of a nude child.
Police say the incident happened in February when the man texted an image of a female believed to be seven or eight years of age.
The recipient of the message notified the man’s supervisors, who called police. The man was terminated from his job.
On Tuesday, police arrested a 37-year-old man and have charged him with possessing, distributing and accessing child pornography.
He has been released on a promise to appear.
