In October 2012, Todd, a 15-year-old from Port Coquitlam, B.C., committed suicide after posting a video on YouTube saying she had been blackmailed by an online predator after exposing her breasts on a webcam.
Coban was arrested in the Netherlands in 2012 after an investigation into online harassment involving Dutch victims.
He was eventually charged with extortion, internet luring, criminal harassment and the possession and distribution of child pornography by the RCMP in the Todd case.
Coban is also facing 72 charges not related to Todd in the Netherlands, including blackmail and the production and distribution of child pornography. His trial there has been postponed three times and is now scheduled to start in January, 2017.
