There was no sign of former Sudbury reporter Callam Rodya at the Sudbury Courthouse on Elm Street this afternoon, as his matter was adjourned Tuesday morning to Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. in Courtroom E.

He was scheduled to enter a plea on Jan. 7 at 2 p.m. Reporters in the court to witness the plea were surprised when Rodya, who was supposed to be present, never appeared. 

It wasn't until a break in the proceedings that the media was informed that, despite the 2 p.m. court time, Rodya's matter had been dealt with in the morning when no media was present.

Rodya is charged with three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of accessing child pornography, three counts of making it available and one count of possession of a controlled substance (cocaine).
