Woman's child-porn possession case adjourned until April

Woman's child-porn possession case adjourned until April

A Moncton woman appeared in court Friday to face a charge of possession of child pornography, but her case was adjourned until next month to give her lawyer more time to prepare.

Cindy Lynn Noel was arrested Feb. 7 after an investigation into alleged child exploitation, the RCMP said at the time.  

The 26-year-old was charged with possession of child pornography and told to return to provincial court March 17.

But on Friday, her lawyer, Martin Goguen, told the court he was new to Noel's case and asked for more time before it proceeded.

Judge Paul Duffie granted the request. Noel is due back in court on April 7 at 9:30.

According to an RCMP news release announcing the arrest in February, the force's child exploitation co-ordination centre in Ottawa contacted the internet child exploitation unit in New Brunswick last May about "images of child sexual abuse being made available online."

The RCMP said they later executed a search warrant at a Main Street home and seized "electronic items."
