HALIFAX (CP) — Two Halifax teens face child pornography charges in the case of Rehtaeh Parsons, the 17-year-old Halifax girl who was taken off life-support following a suicide attempt in April.

Her family says she was bullied for months after a digital photo of her allegedly being sexually assaulted was passed around her school.
Police say one 18-year-old man faces two counts of distributing child pornography, while another 18-year-old man faces charges of making and distributing child pornography.
Both accused are due in court next Thursday.
The RCMP said earlier this year that they looked into the allegations of sexual assault and an inappropriate photo but concluded there were no grounds to lay charges.
