The charges stemmed from various incidents in which he had accessed child pornography. Two of the incidents occurred in June of 2006 when he downloaded more than 100 images from a German website onto a home computer. Seventy-four of the images were found to match the Canadian definition of child pornography.

He was arrested in Fort Nelson on May 8, 2007.

McNeice is a former principal of R.L. Angus Elementary School. During the investigation, police had also found some ‘relevant’ images on his work computer.
