December trial set for Maple Ridge lawyer facing child porn charges

Estimated to take two days in provincial court

A trial date has been set for Maple Ridge lawyer David Andrew Riddell, who is facing two child pornography charges.

Riddell, born in 1971, appears in Port Coquitlam provincial court next Dec. 17 and 18.

A representative for Riddell appeared in court Wednesday and chose trial before a provincial court judge. Defence and the Crown prosecutor agreed that two days are needed for a trial.

Riddell was charged in July with making child pornography on Aug. 17, 2016, according to an information filed in Port Coquitlam provincial court. He’s also charged with possessing child pornography on Jan. 17, 2017.

Riddell had an office in Maple Ridge and a sub-office in Pitt Meadows, but is no longer practising law.

According to the Law Society of B.C., Riddell has voluntarily stopped practising law until the charges have been dealt with.
