Case #: 2013-1891275

On Thursday, October 10, 2013, members of the Toronto Police Sex Crimes - Child Exploitation were called to a home in the Sheppard Avenue East and Yonge Street area.

It is alleged that:

- police were advised that computer devices in the home contained child sexual abuse material

- a man possessed and accessed the child sexual abuse material on these devices

On Friday, November 1, 2013, the Toronto Police received judicial authorization to facilitate the independent securing and examining of the computer devices. Officers had reason to believe that some of the material on the devices was subject to solicitor/client privilege. Accordingly the material was independently reviewed as required by law.

On Thursday, October 19, 2017, as a result of the evidence gathered, Jamuar Sharat Vijaya, 54, of Toronto, was arrested.

He has been charged with:

1. Possession of Child Pornography
2. Accessing Child Pornography

He appeared in court on Thursday, October 19, 2017, at College Park Courts, 10 a.m., room 501.
