New West man faces child pornography charges

A New Westminster man is facing possession and distribution of child pornography charges.

New West police recommended charges against Steven Roth, 50, in July following a four-month investigation. After Crown counsel approved them Aug. 16, Roth appeared in court charged with importing, distributing, selling or possessing for the purposes of distribution or sale of child pornography, and possession of child pornography. He was released from custody with several conditions imposed upon him including:

• an officer must be allowed into his residence at any time to confirm he doesn't have any internet capable equipment;

• he can only use a restricted computer assigned to him by his employer;

• he's banned from accessing the internet from any location or by any means;

• he can't have contact with children under the age of 16 years and not attend any location where they frequent such as parks, schools and libraries.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 28.
