      •  But this pictures are still illegal and considered (0+ / 0-)

        child pornography under Canadian law.  The problem is the police and Crown's would have to prove that a specific person was in possession of them, or distributed them.  And at least until now, they have not been able to get enough evidence in this regard.

        The fact is we don't actually know how many people saw these pictures and how widely they were distributed.  All we have is the mother's assertion that they "went viral" around the school and were shared by text message.  But how is the mother in a position to know this?
