Military police have charged a Sydney man with possession of child pornography after a June 2013 incident at Camp Aldershot.

Cpl. Lawrence Arthur Jordan, a 26-year-old primary reservist of the Cape Breton Highlandera, was charged May 27 in Kentville Provincial Court.

Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, a unit within the Canadian Forces Military Police, investigated the offence, which is alleged to have occurred June 18, 2013, at the Kings County facility.

According to court documents, Jordan is accused of possessing “digital graphic images and/or videos.”

Jordan has yet to enter a plea to the charges. His first court appearance is scheduled for July 14 in Kentville.

“The possession of child pornography is illegal and unacceptable,” said Lt.-Col. Brian Frei, commanding officer of the investigation service.  “The Military Police consider this incident to be a serious matter and will thoroughly investigate any allegations of child pornography related to Canadian Armed Forces members, Department of National Defence employees or defence establishments.”
