A family doctor from Sylvan Lake–has been charged with child exploitation offences.
The ALERT team arrested Dr. Fred Janke yesterday in Edmonton—and have charged the 62-year old with making arrangements to commit sexual offences against a child, making child porn—and distributing child porn.
Police actually started investigating him back in October–where he was allegedly involved in sexually explicit conversations with someone he’d met online.
Those talks allegedly led to him trying to arrange to have sex with the person’s 5-year old daughter.
Police say there IS no daughter–because Janke had been speaking with an undercover officer–with the Victoria Police Department.
At the time—they were conducting a proactive investigation–involving a website thats known to host online chat rooms that are geared towards sex with children.
Janke has been a doctor in Sylvan Lake for almost 30 years
