Rehtaeh Parsons child porn case adjourned

HALIFAX - The case of two teenagers facing child pornography charges after the death of Rehtaeh Parsons has been adjourned until the new year.

Both teens are charged with distributing child pornography, while one of the teens also faces a charge of making child pornography.

They cannot be named because they were under the age of 18 at the time of the alleged offences and both are charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Parsons was taken off life-support following a suicide attempt last April that her family says was prompted by relentless bullying.

They say the 17-year-old girl was tormented after a digital photograph of her allegedly being sexually assaulted in November 2011 was spread around her school.

The case is due back in Halifax provincial court January 9.
