CATLETTSBURG, Ky. (AP) - A former Boy Scout leader in Kentucky who’s facing trial on a charge of electronically soliciting a minor now also faces a charge of child porn possession.

The Daily Independent reports ( https://bit.ly/2s1Xrjg ) 52-year-old Paul “Steve” Crace was arrested Tuesday. Boyd County Sheriff Bobby Jack Woods says deputies discovered images of child pornography involving at least two boys on Crace’s previously seized cell phone.

Crace formerly led an Ashland scout troop. He was indicted in 2015 on a charge of prohibited use of an electronic communication system to procure a minor, accused by authorities of offering a scout under age 15 money in exchange for sexual favors.

Defense attorney Sebastian Joy has questioned evidence the prosecution says it has in the case.

Crace is being held on $20,000 bond.
