COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) â€” Longshot Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alvin GreeneÂ was indicted Friday on two charges, including a felony charge of showing pornography to a teenage student in a South Carolina college computer lab.
GreeneÂ surprised the party establishment with his primary victory in June. His arrest in November was first reported by The Associated Press the day after he won the nomination.
Authorities said he approached a student in a University of South Carolina computer lab, showed her obscene photos online, then talked about going to her dorm room.
A Richland County grand jury indictedÂ Greene, 32, for disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity â€” a felony â€” as well as a misdemeanor charge of communicating obscene materials to a person without consent.
If convicted,Â GreeneÂ could face up to three years for the misdemeanor or up to five years for the felony.
GreeneÂ declined comment at his home in Manning. He has also refused to talk about the charge in interviews, and his attorney did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
GreeneÂ had visited the computer lab at the Bates House dorm in Columbia several times before his arrest, using an old student ID card to gain admission, according to campus police records. Dorm staffers told police they had asked security staff not to let him in, but reports did not give any more details.
GreeneÂ graduated from South Carolina in 2000 with a political science degree.
