Hafford man pleads guilty to child porn charges

A Hafford man pleaded guilty on Nov. 24 in Saskatoon Provincial Court to accessing and possessing child porn.

Kelly Beleznay, 55, was charged in June after Saskatoon Police launched an investigation in February 2020. Police say they had received “many complaints” about someone accessing child porn on the Internet. The Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) and the Blaine Lake RCMP searched Beleznay’s Hafford home on June 2. They found child porn and seized a laptop and USB storage devices for further forensic analysis.
