TORONTO - Former Ontario deputy education minister Ben Levin will be going to trial to defend himself against child pornography charges.

“Yes,” his lawyer Clayton Ruby said Thursday when asked if he requested that the case go directly to trial at this week’s preliminary hearing.

Levin, he indicated, will fight the allegations and plead not guilty.

“He pleaded not guilty to all counts and will be tried in Provincial Court,” said Ruby. “Dates to be set (Friday) morning.”

The 62-year-old Levin is a University of Toronto professor and was photographed on a float at the Pride Parade with Premier Kathleen Wynne and federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau prior to his July 2013 arrest.  (more...)
