MIRAMICHI, NB–A Miramichi-area High School Principal returns to court next month to face child pornography charges.

Thirty-seven- year-old Kirk Leigh Matheson is expected to enter a plea on August 27th on four charges in connection with incidents that allegedly occurred between February and April of this year.

The matter was adjourned in court Monday when the Defence asked for more time to review information from the Crown.

Police allege that Matheson posed as a woman on the internet to entice male youth to send him nude photos of themselves.

Matheson was the Principal of North and South Esk Regional High School in Sunny Corner when the charges were laid.
