Fiddler is also charged with failing to comply with an order of prohibition. According to court records, this charge stems from a Toronto Police file where Fiddler was banned from using a computer to communicate with youth under the age of 16.

Fiddler was arrested Oct. 21, 2020, after the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) obtained a search warrant for his Estevan home where police say they found child porn. Police launched the investigation after they received numerous complaints someone was distributing child porn on social media.

Fiddler was released from custody in November 2020.

A trial date hasn’t been set.
