A man faces a charge in relation to a child pornography investigation from 2004 by the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division.
In January 2014, investigators launched an investigation after receiving information that in 2004, a doctor had taken naked pictures of a 14-year-old girl under his care. The investigation culminated with the arrest of the suspect yesterday, after he turned himself in at Police Headquarters.
Dr. Curtis Arlo Steele, 82, is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court on June 16, to face one count of making child pornography. He was released from custody under conditions to not communicate with the victim or children under the age of 16 and not be within 50 meters of a place known to be frequented by children.
