Matter adjourned for teens charged in Rehtaeh Parsons case Add to ...

The case of two teenagers facing child pornography charges after the death of Rehtaeh Parsons has been adjourned until Nov. 14.

Lawyers for the young men appeared Thursday in a Halifax courtroom, where they told the judge they had just received disclosure of evidence from the Crown and were given a delay.

The young men were not in court.

One of the teens faces two counts of distributing child pornography, while the other is charged with distributing and making child pornography.

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

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

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