KAMLOOPS, B.C. - The trial of a retired teacher facing child-pornography charges will get underway in Kamloops, B.C., early in the new year.

A date for 66-year-old Jerry Waselenkoff's trial in B.C. Supreme Court has not yet been set.

A preliminary inquiry was held last week.

Waselenkoff will be represented by Vancouver lawyer Glen Orris.

The Crown is expected to rely on testimony from people who came across several DVDs while doing electrical work above Waselenkoff’s home.

Earlier this year, Waselenkoff was denied a change to his bail conditions that would have allowed him to have his passport back so he could travel to Thailand. (Kamloops This Week)
