Man sentenced for child sexual offences

Andrew Felling charged in Abbotsford and Mission

NOTE: Due to incorrect information provided by the court registry, an earlier version of this story indicated that Andrew Felling had been sentenced to 14 months in prison. In fact, he received three consecutive terms of 14 months.

A man who was charged with 12 child sexual offences in Mission and five in Abbotsford has been sentenced to 42 months in prison on seven of the charges.

Andrew Douglas Felling, 36, was sentenced May 17 in Abbotsford provincial court on four of the Mission charges – sexual interference of a person under 14, sexual interference of a person under 16 and two counts of making or publishing child porn.

He was also sentenced on three of the Abbotsford charges – sexual interference, possessing child porn, and making or publishing child porn.

The remaining charges – all similar to the ones to which he pleaded guilty – were stayed.

Felling first came to police attention in Abbotsford, when he was charged with five offences in December 2013 and January 2014.

The charges were laid after an investigator with the Abbotsford Police Department was searching online for images of child sexual abuse.

He was able to trace the IP address of certain images to Felling’s residence in Abbotsford, and a search warrant was executed there, resulting in the seizure of evidence that he had sexually interfered with a youth.

Felling pleaded guilty in November 2014, but sentencing was delayed as police continued their investigation.

Felling was charged in August 2015 with nine offences in Mission. Three more charges were later added.
