Minister Faces Child Porn Charges

Dumfries authorities say a South Carolina Baptist minister is charged with distribution of child pornography.

Police said in a statement that the Rev. Timothy Lynn Brumit contacted a police officer on the Internet who was posing as a 13-year-old boy.

Police say that during online chats earlier this month, Brumit distributed videos and photographs of children in various sexual activities.

Investigators say Brumit wanted to pick up the boy in Virginia and take him back to South Carolina.

Brumit, a high school teacher, was arrested Thursday and is being held in Columbia, South Carolina, awaiting a hearing on Tuesday.

Authorities in Prince William and Stafford counties were also reviewing the case.
