Possession of child pornography and assault charges against a 52-year-old Sooke man have now been stayed by the Crown.

RCMP in Sooke began investigating the allegations on July 29 and laid charges the following month. The day after the investigation began, the accused turned himself in to police.

In provincial court Thursday, the possession of child pornography charge was stayed by the Crown.

A stay of proceedings is usually directed when there is not a reasonable likelihood of a conviction. The charges, however, can be reinstated within one year.
