JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A former pastor is charged with child pornography possession after Jonesboro investigators say they found sexually explicit images involving children on his computer.

John-Mark Wilson was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Craighead County District Court, and a judge released him on his own recognizance. He’s expected to appear in court again next month. He faces up to 10 years in prison if he’s found guilty.

A Brookland Church of Christ leader declined to comment to the Jonesboro Sun but confirmed 45-year-old Wilson no longer was a minister at the church.

It wasn’t immediately known if Wilson has an attorney. No listing for Wilson’s home phone number could be found.

A Jonesboro detective says Wilson admitted to downloading and viewing the images.
