KAMLOOPS - A retired teacher facing a child-pornography charge will return to B.C. Supreme Court in two weeks to set a trial date.
Jerry Waselenkoff is facing one count of possession of child pornography, and a date for his trial is expected to be set on Jan. 19.
The 66-year-old Kamloops resident was charged in 2013 after an investigation that lasted nearly a year.
The Crown is expected to rely on testimony from workers who said they found a stash of DVDs during electrical repairs in a condo above the one in which Waselenkoff was living in 2012.
Last year, the former elementary school teacher tried to amend a bail condition that prevented him from travelling to Thailand.
A provincial court judge denied his request.
