Ex-OPP officer jailed 18 months for child porn and internet luring

A former police officer is heading to jail for 18 months for possessing child pornography and paying to have children in foreign countries involved in sex acts that he could watch over Skype.

John Paul Stone, 57, who spent five years working for the OPP near Belleville, was led away in handcuffs by a Perth County OPP officer Wednesday after Superior Court Justice Ian Leach delivered his decision in a Stratford courtroom.

A long list of charges was laid nearly three years ago, and Stone pleaded guilty to two of them this past December.

“I’m ready,” the longtime Listowel resident said Wednesday to Postmedia outside the Perth County Courthouse in Stratford when asked how he was feeling on the morning of his sentencing.
