A South Carolina pastor and his wife have been charged with having child pornography on their computer.
Multiple media outlets report Friday that 41-year-old Grady Bernard Ponds and 40-year-old Rhonda Jean Ponds of Bamberg were arrested Tuesday and charged with one count each of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
Attorney General Henry McMaster says the couple saved pictures of children engaged in sex acts on their computer, which is now being examined for evidence.
Grady and Rhonda Ponds were released on personal recognizance bonds. Grady Ponds says he and his wife are innocent and referred questions to his attorney.
If convicted, the couple each could face up to 10 years in prison.
