Missouri mayor faces child porn charge

DADEVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- The mayor of the small southwest Missouri town of Dadeville has been charged with possessing child pornography.

Online court records show the charge was filed Friday against 63-year-old James Toler and that he was released from jail after posting $25,000 bond.

His next court appearance is set for May 18.

A message that The Associated Press left at his home Saturday was not immediately returned.

Dadeville resident Nancy Davis told broadcaster KSPR that Toler had stepped in and helped the community of 200 when everyone else was too busy or not interested. For some time, he was the only person who bothered to mow city property.

Davis says she is shocked by the charge.
