WINNIPEG, Sept 29 ( – Garry Michael Geisel, 56, argued in court this week that his criminal charges for photographing children 14 and over engaged in sex is discriminatory against the children. While one of the girls he is charged with photographing is under 14, Geisel argues that the others all under 18 should have the right to pose for pornographic photos since Canadian law allows legal sex at 14. 

Provincial court Judge Linda Giesbrecht found Geisel guilty but has reserved sentencing since Sharpe’s Charter challenge remains unresolved. The court will resume hearings October 28.
