A Bracebridge man facing child porn and luring charges is heading to pre-trial.

The 18-year-old was arrested in July after a year-long investigation by the OPP’s Child Sexual Exploitation Unit. The man cannot be named because his charges stem from crimes committed when he was a youth.

A pre-trial is often used by the court to review evidence and testimonies that could be used in a trial. His pre-trial hearing is scheduled for January 4th at the Bracebridge courthouse.
