UPDATED: Langford man arrested on child pornography charges

Kevin James Wolski, 40, released on $5,000 bail with 12 conditions

The West Shore RCMP Major Crime unit arrested a Langford man as part of a child pornography investigation by the Manitoba RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation Unit.

Information received by West Shore detachment allowed them to “promptly draft a search warrant of a home on Silverstone Way in Langford,” which resulted in the arrest of Kevin James Wolski, 40.

He appeared at the Western Communities Courthouse on Thursday and was charged with two counts of making child pornography. He was also charged with one count of communicating with a child for the purpose of committing an offence.

“Crimes against children are serious and result in lifelong emotional scars,” said West Shore RCMP Const. Alex Berube. “Unfortunately there are some individuals who use the Internet as a tool to cause serious harm and to commit criminal acts.”

Wolski was released on $5,000 bail under 12 conditions. They include avoiding contact with a specific woman – her name cannot be released due to a publication ban – not to be in possession of or to access pornographic material, not to be alone or in contact with a child under 16 unless he is in the presence of an adult third party approved by the bail supervisor, and is not allowed to be in any public park, school ground, daycare centre, swimming pool, playground or other place children might be present.

Wolski is also not allowed to possess any device capable of accessing the Internet.

Since his arrest, he has also reportedly stepped down from his position with the Braefoot Community Association, on which he has sat as a director since August 2013, according to his LinkedIn profile.

His next court date is scheduled for May 14 at the Western Communities Courthouse.
