Democratic Senate Candidate Alvin Greene indicted on porn charges

South Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene was indicted Friday on felony charges of showing pornography to a college student.

Greene, an unemployed 32-year-old military veteran, had refused to discuss the charges, which surfaced after he was the surprise winner of the state’s June Democratic primary over better-known Charleston City Councilman Vic Rawl.

Reached by phone by POLITICO briefly on Friday afternoon, Greene declined to comment and referred all inquiries to his attorney, Eleazer Carter. Carter also declined to comment.

A Richland County grand jury based in Columbia, S.C., handed down the indictment on Friday for disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity. He was also indicted on a misdemeanor charge of communicating obscene materials to a person without consent, the Associated Press reported.

Greene was arrested in November after police charged that approached a female University of South Carolina student in the school’s library, showed her the lewd photos, and suggested they go to her dorm room.
