OTTAWA — A public servant who filmed a teen boy going to the bathroom, and his computer-savvy boyfriend who ordered footage of naked children online were sentenced Monday.

Scott Dignan, 47, received two years in prison for voyeurism and child porn possession.

Eric Charron, 36, received a 90-day jail sentence he can serve on weekends after copping to possessing child porn.

It was Charron who first came to police attention when Toronto Police busted a major international child porn distributor in May 2011.

The distributor had helpfully preserved a database of his clientele.

Charron had ordered a DVD called “Black Sea 2.0,” starring boys aged 10 to 13 years old frolicking in the nude.

Ottawa Police searched Charron’s home on Valentine’s Day 2013. Thanks to Dignan’s dirty dealings, they already knew where to find it.

That’s because Dignan used his friendship with a woman to prey upon her 13-year-old son in January 2013.

The teen tried to go to the bathroom but Dignan blocked his way, saying he’d have to wait. When the boy finally got in, he saw a key fob on the toilet.

Suspicious, the boy told his mother and they set up a sting.
