BROCKVILLE ā€“ A Quebec man has been given a two year jail sentence after pleading guilty to a couple of charges related to transporting and sharing child pornography.

Andre Delage, 30, entered the plea in a Brockville, Ont. courtroom on Wednesday (Jan. 18).

The balance of the charges (three) were withdrawn by the Crown.

Following the completion of his two year sentence, Delage will be on probation for three years.

In addition, the man from Ascot Corner, Que. will be on the National Sex Offender Registry for 20 years and he has to submit a DNA sample.
