Abbotsford Vice Principal arrested for child pornography

Sep 28 2018, 6:48 pm

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) and their Major Crime Unit are seeking out individuals who have been victimized by Michael Haire.

Haire was the Vice Principal at the William A. Fraser Middle School and is facing charges related to child pornography offences.

The APD’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit launched an investigation in late July 2018.

After a search warrant was obtained, police seized computers, data storage devices, and cell phones.

Members from a digital forensic lab found thousands of images and photos depicting child pornography and child abuse.

The 38-year-old principal has now been charged with “making available child pornography” and “possession of child pornography.”

Haire had been at the school for three years and was an employee with the Abbotsford School District for 12 years. Prior to this event, he carried no criminal record.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the APD’s ICE unit at 604-859-5225.
