The case of a former local journalist charged with luring a teenager over the Internet was called in provincial court in St. John's this morning.
Kevin Kelly, 41, is alleged to have been sending inappropriate messages to a teenage girl on Facebook over a five-week period. A complaint was made to police in January 2012.
The case has now been set over to March 1 for election and plea.
Kelly was a senior editor with The Herald magazine during the time of the alleged offence.
