CORNWALL, ON – A Cornwall, ON, police officer has been charged with child luring and child prostitution.

Const. Pascal Rossignol appeared in a Quebec provincial court Friday.

After a two-year investigation by the Surete de Quebec, Rossignol was charged with invitation to sexual touching, child luring on the Internet and two counts of prostitution of a person under the age of 18.

Details of the alleged crimes have not been made public.

He has been on paid leave since Oct. 13, 2010, when a complaint was first made to the Cornwall Community Police Service.

Rossignol has been with the department since May 2007.

Cornwall still bears painful scars from similar sex cases involving authority figures in the city.

Several reports in the 1990s of historical sex abuse by priests, police and other officials in Cornwall unleashed a public inquiry into the possibility of a child-sex ring operating in the eastern Ontario city.

Dozens of charges were laid in the investigation, and a report found systemic failures to protect abused kids in the community, but in the end, police said they found no evidence of a pedophile ring.
