A Sudbury man faces multiple charges in relation to child pornography and resisting arrest.

Greater Sudbury Police said its Internet Child Exploitation unit initiated an investigation in May regarding child pornography being made available online by a local resident. 

On Tuesday, the ICE and computer forensics units executed a search warrant at a residence in Greater Sudbury with the assistance of emergency response and intelligence units. 

James (Jamie) Doucette, 43, of Greater Sudbury, was arrested following the search.

Doucette has been charged with three counts of accessing and possessing child porn, as well as making it available.

He was also charged with two counts of assaulting police with the intent to resist arrest, obstructing police, and two counts of possession of a prohibited device. 

Doucette was to appear in bail court Aug. 25 to answer to the charges. 

The ICE unit of Greater Sudbury Police is part of the Ontario Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet. This has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Ministry of the Attorney General.
