Court trial delayed for Canadian in Florida sex tourism case

The Associated Press
Trial has been delayed for a Canadian man accused of travelling to Florida to have sex with someone investigators say he believed was an underage boy.

U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore agreed to delay trial for Rene Roberge of Sherbrooke, Quebec, until Jan. 26. It had been set to begin Monday. Court papers show the case likely will end in a plea deal.

Authorities say Roberge flew to Florida after making contact on the Internet with undercover investigators posing as a 14-year-old boy and his father to arrange a sexual encounter. Agents also allegedly found child pornography on Roberge’s tablet computer.
