Where’s Waldman?

Manitoba Justice has arrested and detained Doron Waldman, who just spent 20 months in a U.S. prison for child-sex-tourism related crimes.

Waldman is currently in custody at the remand centre after being deported from the U.S. late Wednesday or Thursday.

My sources tell me they’ve been working on arrangements to bring him back to Winnipeg for trial for a while now.

He’s facing three charges, for allegedly possessing and accessing child pornography between Oct. 3 2007 and Nov. 20, 2007 and  attempting to procure a person under the age of 18 for sexual purposes between Aug. 10 ’07 and Nov. 19 ’07.

It’s not news that he was due to face charges here once his sentence expired down south.

It is news that he’s back.

His next court date is Aug. 20.

Veteran defence lawyer Greg Brodsky’s firm has been retained to represent him.
