A preliminary hearing has led to a former central Alberta teacher being ordered to stand trial on sex-related charges.

Rhett Lundgren, who is 40, is charged with one count of sexual exploitation and one count of luring.

Lundgren was a teacher at a Red Deer high school in 2008 when the alleged offences took place.He was charged last January following a complaint by a woman who was 17 at the time of the alleged encounters.

Lundgren has pleaded not guilty and has elected to be tried by judge alone, although a trial date has yet to be set.

The name of the complainant and details from the preliminary hearing are under a publication ban.

Lundgren was charged with possession of child pornography in Saskatchewan in January 2017.
