A 27-year-old University of Saskatchewan law student will go to jail for one year after a judge reviewed some of the 70,000 “shocking and horrible” child pornography images found on USB sticks in his pocket at the Saskatoon Airport on May 31. Among the images were photos of men abusing infant girls and men having sex with animals.

Eran Michael Pinsky, who pleaded guilty, had already been charged with possession of one of the largest collections of child porn ever found in Canada in 2009. In fact, it was as a result of bail conditions following that charge that police knew he was planning to leave the city in May and decided to check up on him at the airport.

During his three-year probation, Pinsky will be not be allowed internet access outside of work, he will be required to abstain from all pornography, he will take sex offender treatment and his name will remain in the national sex offender registry for ten years.
