Trial set for former Red Deer teacher

Facing child pornography-related charges

A former Red Deer high school teacher and football coach will go to trial on child pornography-related charges on March 21, 2019.

Rhett Jeffrey Lundgren, 41, faces two counts of luring a child, and one count each of sexual exploitation, making, printing or publishing child pornography, and selling or distributing child pornography.

RCMP laid the charges in January 2017 after a woman came forward and made a complaint. She was 17 at the time of the alleged offences about eight years earlier. Lundgren was a teacher at Hunting Hills High School in 2007 and 2008.

He also is due to go to trial in Saskatoon in June on half a dozen charges, including attempting to access child pornography and arranging to commit a sexual offence against a child.

Lundgren was a high school teacher in Saskatoon when he was arrested and charged in December 2016.
