A 41-year-old Chatham man facing a luring charge made a brief appearance in a Chatham bail court Tuesday.

Jeremy Gibson is slated to return to court on Jan. 22, giving him time to apply for legal aid in connection to charges of luring a child under 16 and making sexually explicit material available to a person under the age of 16.

Two publication bans, prohibiting evidence from being publicized and protecting the identity of the victim, were imposed by the court on Tuesday.

According to previously published reports, Gibson was arrested by Chatham-Kent police on Nov. 25.

Police had become aware in October of a video circulating on social media that resulted in the internet child exploitation unit investigating its content, including contained conversations via the social media site Instagram.
