Disturbing new details have emerged about an alleged distributor of child porn in Regina.

Darren Darwin Philpott, 37, is charged with possessing and distributing child pornography, including videos of nude boys taken in change rooms.

Now, it turns out he retained a membership to city facilities all over Regina, even after he was charged.

Philpott was denied bail last week and evidence from that hearing is banned from publication.

However, CBC News has learned something that was not mentioned in court. A week after he was charged, Philpott still had a membership that, had he not been in custody, would have given him access to boys changing rooms at every city-owned hockey rink, gym, and swimming pool in Regina.

Some parents whose children use the facilities were expressing alarm about this earlier this week.

"I'm utterly disgusted," said Mari Laybolt, a parent. "It's the first thing I've ever heard of it and I'm definitely going to think twice before I take my son back there, for sure."

After Philpott was charged earlier this month, the city did not cancel his membership. Nor did it tell any of the staff at the facilities.

"The city hasn't been given any information from the Regina Police Service that there is a concern in our facilities that we should act upon," said Chris Holden, a spokesman for the city's community and leisure services section.

Information about Philpott is easy to find on the internet, however. He has a history of working with children. He's been a Big Brother in Regina, Victoria and Winnipeg.

Big Brothers of Regina once named him its "Ambassador of the Month."

Until August, he worked at Western Christian College and High School in Regina as the enrolment officer.

There is no allegation that he acted improperly at either Big Brothers or the college.

Philpott will be back in court next week.
