The Crown and defence both made a joint submission calling for a six-month sentence; Froese must also register and comply with the conditions of the Sex Offender Infromation Act for a period of 10 years.

Judge Lloyd Deshaye also imposed a DNA order as well as a forfeiture order on a personal computer, two USBs, and an external hard drive.

Froese was arrested after members of the Saskatchewan ICE unit and North Battleford RCMP General Investigations Unit executed a search warrant at a residence in North Battleford May 9, in relation to an investigation involving the possession and accessing of child pornography between January and May 2019. Several items including computers and digital storage devices were seized during the search.

According to the facts outlined in court by the Crown, Froese had accessed the child porn images online but did not keep them in his possession; there is no charge of possession or of distribution of child porn in this particular case.
