Calgary police have charged a piano teacher after he allegedly showed a five-year-old girl pornographic videos during a private music lesson.
Police said the child's mother contacted them on Friday after her daughter described being shown pornographic videos by her piano teacher, Darrin Colby Hogue.
Investigators believe the incident happened in last month, at the northwest home where the victim lives.
The Calgary Police Service Child Abuse Unit has now charged 33-year-old Hogue with one count of making sexually explicit material available to children, and one count of possession of obscene material for the purpose of publication.
He will next appear in court on April 12, 2018.
Police urged anyone who is a victim of crime, or believe they know someone who is, to contact their non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.
