A new trial has dismissed a request for a mistrial for a young man accused of distributing child porn online in Maple Ridge.
Dennis Warrington, 21, posted images on his Facebook page of sexual activity between two teens at a rave in Pitt Meadows more than two years ago.
The judge has determined the Crown's request to use larger monitors in court for witnesses to examine the evidence is reasonable, and witnesses who've already testified can be recalled to view the images again.
She also ruled a mistrial would cause unnecessary delays and she agreed with prosecutors who say a new trial should only be ordered as a last resort.
The trial is slated to resume Nov. 27 with up to 13 more witnesses slated to testify.
