WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - The former chief executive officer of the Boal Mansion Museum won’t be tried on child-sex charges until at least June because of new charges that he created child pornography and tried to destroy unspecified evidence on a cellphone.

Sixty-six-year-old Christopher G. Lee has been jailed since October on federal charges he enticed a 17-year-old girl to cross state lines to have sex with him on the museum’s premises, where students from around the world work as volunteer guides.

He was supposed to stand trial in April, but a federal judge in Williamsport on Wednesday agreed to postpone it because of new charges filed last week accusing Lee of enticing a minor to create child pornography in 2005 and 2006, and the phone-related evidence tampering charge from last fall.

Lee’s defense attorney didn’t immediately comment Thursday.
