NEWS RELEASE: Saanich BC - In July 2018 a parent reported to Saanich Police that her two sons, under the age of 10, may be victims of sexual offences. Detectives from the Family Protection Unit, who are specifically trained in child exploitation crimes, began an investigation into the allegations. A suspect was identified as 30-year-old Johnathon Lee Robichaud, from Central Saanich, who had been employed as the family’s nanny.
Through the course of the investigation Saanich Police Detectives worked with Investigators from both the Central Saanich Police Service and VicPD. Detectives were able to uncover evidence to support these allegations.
As Detectives were conducting the investigation they also uncovered a significant amount of images, and videos, containing sexually explicit material involving children. Detectives were able to identify another victim, through the material gathered, however there is a compelling belief there may be more child victims who have not yet come forward.
The BC Prosecution Service has currently approved criminal charges against Johnathon Lee Robichaud. These charges include one count of Sexual Interference, two counts of Invitation to Sexual Touching, and one count of Making Sexually Explicit Material Available to a Child. As the related charges are before the court we are unable to provide further specific information into the details of the alleged offences at this time.
Mr. Robichaud has lived in the Greater Victoria area for a significant period of time. Investigators know he has had various employment and volunteer opportunities, including youth groups, church groups, child care facilities and before/after school programs. He has also advertised himself on various nanny websites and via local classified advertisement sites.
Mr. Robichaud is currently on conditions to not be in contact with children under the age of 16, not to attend recreation centres, daycares, schools, churches, parks or any other place a child under the age of 16 could reasonably be.
“As we’re unable to verify all the places where Mr. Robichaud volunteered or worked with children we’re asking the public to contact us” said Sgt. Jereme Leslie. “We all have a responsibility to protect children and we need the publics help in assisting us.”
Out of an abundance of caution, if your child has been alone with Mr. Robichaud, we’re asking you to contact the Saanich Police Department at 1-250-475-4756. This is a dedicated Information Line specific to this investigation. Our Investigators are trained in child interviewing and we’re asking that you speak to an Investigator prior to speaking to your children. We have a number of support services available should you need them. ... See MoreSee Less
