The two teenagers facing child pornography charges in connection with the high-profile Rehtaeh Parsons case won't be back in court until the new year.

An 18-year-old man and 19-year-old man were expected in court on Thursday, but the case has been put over until Jan. 9 for election and plea.

One man is charged with creating and distributing child pornography. The other faces two distribution charges.

The accused cannot be named because they were minors at the time of the alleged offences.

Both have been charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Parsons was taken off life support following a suicide attempt last April that her family says was prompted by relentless bullying.

They said the 17-year-old girl was bullied after a digital photograph of her allegedly being sexually assaulted in November 2011 was passed around her school.
