Child-porn charges laid

  • Print

POLICE have laid child-pornography charges against a local man known as MrJetzTV.

Winnipeg Police Service spokesman Const. Jason Michalyshen said Friday Darrell Erwin Ackman, 43, has been charged with two counts of possessing child pornography, two counts of making/printing/publishing child pornography and three counts of living on the avails of prostitution.

Officers executed a search warrant at Ackman's home last July, seizing cameras, a cell phone and computer drives.

The charges relate to four female victims aged 14 to 22 years old, he said.

"This, quite simply, is an abuse of their rights, and certainly, an individual that is engaged in this activity is...just something that we hate to see," said Michalyshen.

Ackman had tried to build a profile in Winnipeg after he started taping young women and putting their images online under the nickname 'Mr.JetzTV.' According to a warrant filed earlier this year, police looked into Ackman after hearing he was allegedly advertising escorts online.

A 17-year-old girl allegedly told officers Ackman would set up meetings for her with men paying her for sex.

"I can tell you that Mr. Ackman is alleged to have facilitated meetings between the victims involved and paying customers, essentially," said Michalyshen.

"He would facilitate these meetings, go as far as driving the victims to and from these locations, where paying customers would be, and would profit.

"(There) would be cases he would profit by taking half of the proceeds, so this is pretty despicable behaviour."

Ackman's lawyer, Martin Glazer, said he'd already been released from custody on bail Friday.
