Canadian teen faces child pornography charges

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) " A 14-year-old Canadian boy has been charged with sharing child pornography on Facebook.

Constable Lindsey Donovan said Friday that Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers arrested the young teen at home in Kingston, Nova Scotia, on Thursday after Facebook informed them that the image had been shared.

The boy was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography, and was released following an appearance in provincial court. He will return April 6.

Donovan says it is uncommon for a youth to be charged in pornography cases.
