Guilty of child porn

A Kelowna man has pleaded guilty to crimes involving children.

Steve Walsh entered a guilty plea Friday in provincial court to one count of making or publishing child pornography and another count of possession of child pornography, between May 2010 and November 2012.

In February, Walsh also pleaded guilty to sexual interference of a person under the age of 16.

A psychiatric assessment has been ordered that will take eight to 12 weeks, the findings of which will be heard during pre-sentencing in August.

Walsh stood next to his lawyer dressed in loose-fitting jeans and a grey T-shirt and only spoke when he entered his plea.

He will be placed on probationary terms awaiting sentencing.
