Shawn Gartlan, president of the Woodville Minor Hockey Association, has been charged with possession of child pornography. The item appears here only because of a reader comment:

Shawn Gartlan is a foster parent with CAS ward children placed with him. The news is not mentioning that. CAS has not shut him down.

Since anyone can post a reader comment, this cannot be regarded as definite news, and child pornography can be anything from innocent pictures (breastfeeding, tot in the bathtub) to highly perverse images.



WOODVILLE - The president of the Woodville Minor Hockey Association faces child pornography charges after police executed a search warrant at a Woodville home and business Wednesday.

City of Kawartha Lakes OPP, along the OPP’s child sexual exploitation unit and the technical unit, seized three computers that police say contained images of child sexual abuse.

Shawn Gartlan, 50, was charged with three counts of possession of child pornography and two counts of making child pornography available.

He is to appear in a Lindsay court Thursday.

He is listed as the 2013-14 president of the Woodville Minor Hockey Association and has been an executive in past years.

Woodville is northwest of Lindsay.
