DALEVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say they've filed a new charge against a south Alabama city council member charged with sex crimes last month.
Daleville City Council member Marvin Len Wise was arrested Monday on a charge of possessing child pornography.
District Attorney Kirke Adams tells the Dothan Eagle the charge is related to images found on Wise's cellphone.
Wise was arrested last month on second-degree counts of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse. The 61-year-old man was also charged with enticing a child for unlawful purposes.
A lawyer for Wise says he hasn't seen the new charge and declined comment Tuesday.
A hearing is scheduled for Dec. 7.
Wise was appointed to the Daleville City Council in 2015, and he was elected to the position last year.
