Even though the event first happened on Sept. 10, 2010, it continued to make headlines right through 2012.
That event, which took place on a Harris Road property, came to be known as the Pitt Meadows rave. It attracted national media attention because of an alleged sexual assault that was photographed and those images subsequently circulated on social media.
A few days after the party, police were notified of the alleged crime and a lengthy investigation ensued.
Maple Ridge's Dennis Warrington, 21, was charged with publishing and distributing child pornography.
Warrington is accused of posting to his Facebook page photographs others took of sexual acts that took place between a teen girl and a young man at the outdoor rave.
It is alleged that the acts, which did not include intercourse, were not consensual. He did not know the girl. His trial will continue in January 2013.
Maple Ridge's Colton McMorris, then 18, was charged with sexual assault in connection with this case. But Crown stayed charges in February of 2012, citing the lack of likelihood of a conviction.
A third person, who is also from Maple Ridge and cannot be named because he was a juvenile, was also charged with producing and distributing child pornography.
His trial began Nov. 30 and only one witness testified before the accused announced he was pleading guilty to a lesser charge. A judge ordered him to write an apology to the girl and write an essay on pros and cons of social media.
