A 30-year-old Kent County man has pleaded guilty to possessing images of child sexual abuse.

Marcel Savoie from Saint-Édouard-de-Kent has been sentenced to six months in jail.

In Moncton provincial court this week, Savoie also pleaded guilty for failing to report his address to the National Sex Offender Registry and has been sentenced to another six months which will be served at the same time.

Marcel Savoie was charged in October after the RCMP's Internet Child Exploitation Unit carried out a search warrant at the man's home in Saint-Edouard-de-Kent.

Savoie faces two years probation following his release under strict conditions including no direct contact with children and no access to computers or electronic devices.
