SASKATOON – A Saskatoon man facing dozens of child pornography and sexual assault charges is out on bail. Russell Dennis Wolfe was released on a number of conditions after making a court appearance on Tuesday.

Wolfe was originally arrested in May 2014 as part of Operation Snapshot III. At the time, he was charged with accessing, possessing and making available child pornography.

Further charges were laid against Wolfe in July 2014 after computers and devices that had been seized were further analyzed by investigators from the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit.

On Jan. 26, 2015, 26 more charges, including eight counts of procuring the sexual services of a person under 18, six counts of sexual assault and six of sexual interference were laid against Wolfe.

Police say the most recent charges stem from their ongoing investigation. Investigators were able to identify 12 girls in videos and pictures and say some of the girls were as young as eight.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Wolfe is scheduled to be back in court on March 3.
