HALIFAX, Nova Scotia – Two Canada teenagers are due in youth court today on child pornography charges related to a deadly cyberbullying case.
Rehtaeh Parsons was taken off life support after a suicide attempt in April that her family says was prompted by months of bullying. They say Parsons was tormented after a digital photograph of her allegedly being sexually assaulted was distributed around her school
One 18-year-old man on Thursday faces two counts of distributing child pornography, while another 18-year-old man is charged with distributing and making child pornography.
Police announced the arrests in the high-profile case last week. The teens' names cannot be released because they were under 18 at the time of the alleged offenses.
