Taber's Former Police Commissioner Has First Court Appearance
TABER: The case against a former Taber police commissioner accused of luring an underage girl over the internet has been set over until July 5th. An investigative team arrested Paradee at the end of May after they found evidence a Canadian man was carrying on an internet relationship with an underage girl. Paradee is charged with communicating via computer with a person under 18 for the purpose of committing an offence, communicating via computer with a person under 16 for the purpose of committing an offence, and invite/counsel/incite a person under the age of 16 to touch and accessing child pornography.
Paradee was a member of the police commission for five years until taking the commissioner post just a few months before his arrest. He resigned shortly after police used a search warrant to enter his home and seize his computers, files and memory drives. No plea was entered Tuesday, but a lawyer had the case held over until July 5th.
