Benjamin Levin sentenced to 3 years in prison on child porn charges

Former deputy minister was a member of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s transition team.

Former Ontario deputy education minister Benjamin Levin was sentenced Friday to three years in prison for making and possessing child pornography, and counselling to commit sexual assault.

Levin, 63, showed no reaction as Ontario Court Justice Heather McArthur read her sentence.
She said his “moral blameworthiness” was particularly high, given his background and career in education.

The counselling to commit sexual assault relates to an online interaction Levin had over several weeks with an undercover police officer posing as a mother interested in sexually abusing her young daughter.

“He recklessly pursued his selfish sexual desires, all the while knowing a young girl could be abused,” McArthur said, adding that the “gravity of his crimes is serious.”
