A 33-year-old man has been sentenced to four years in prison after being convicted on sex-related charges involving a minor in Barrie.

According to court documents obtained by BradfordToday and InnisfilToday, the man was sentenced on Feb. 15 in Barrie court after pleading guilty on Sept. 19, 2023.

The man was arrested on Oct. 21, 2021 and charged with two counts of sexual touching and two counts of communicating to facilitate commission of an offence. 

He was later convicted on one count of each.
