Canadian man who lured, exploited NH teen must register as sex offender for 10 years
PETERBOROUGH — On June 7, a Canadian man was convicted for luring and providing explicit material to a child in a Nova Scotia court.
Robert Paul, 19 of Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, Canada, will spend 90 days in jail, be on probation for two years, and will be registered as a sex offender for 10 years for posing as a 14 year old online so he could get sexually explicit photos from a teen.
The teen, 15 of Peterborough, reported the exploitation in February of 2016 to the Peterborough Police department.
After a lengthy seven month investigation with help from the NH-ICAC Task Force and Canadian Internet Child Exploitation Unit, a search warrant was issued for Paul's house.
Paul was arrested the same day as the search, and the court case concluded June 7 with his conviction and sentencing.
