Gregory Lennstrom of Chemainus has been sentenced to five months in jail and two years of probation for possession of child pornography.

Lennstrom was sentenced by B.C. Provincial Court Judge Josiah Wood at the Duncan Law Courts on Tuesday.

He was initially charged with two counts of importing or distributing child pornography, one count of possessing child pornography, and one count of accessing child pornography.

In May, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession, and was sentenced for that single conviction July 26.

The other three charges were stayed.

Under the terms of his two-year probation, Lennstrom cannot possess any device capable of accessing the internet for any purpose other than purposes of employment, and cannot have contact or communication, directly or indirectly, in any fashion whatsoever with anyone under 16 years of age.

He must also attend, participate in and successfully complete any assessment, counselling or program as directed by his probation officer.
