The charge stems from the publication of a picture of two school children having sex in a classroom on the back page of the October 26, 2013 Saturday Sun.

Price was the author of the article, which was accompanied by the offending photograph.

The summary trial, which is taking place in the lower court , will not require the defendants to face a judge and jury.
