VERNON - A Vernon man facing luring and child pornography charges will be sentenced this week.

David Clayton Willerth, born in 1974, is charged with 25 counts, including luring children under 16 by computer, making or publishing child pornography, and invitation to sexual touching of a person under 16.

Willerth’s lawyer, David Johnson, appeared in Vernon Supreme Court Monday before Justice Peter Voith. Willerth was scheduled to enter intended guilty pleas, but it appears the case will be headed straight to sentencing Tuesday. We still don’t know for sure how Willerth will plead on each of the 25 counts.

Willerth was arrested in July 2013 following a joint investigation by the Vernon RCMP and the B.C. Integrated Child Exploitation Unit. He was sentenced this past August for breaching a 2012 probation order not to communicate with underage girls over the Internet.
