FLORENCE, Alabama – On Tuesday, Florence police said an out-of-state arrest warrant for child exploitation led to the arrest of Kenneth Michael Mininger. He now faces 68 additional charges.
Police said they searched a house on Chickasaw Drive on December 3, following reports of a wanted Florence man in Greenville, South Carolina. This research led to the discovery of 48 images of child pornography.
On Thursday morning, Florence police announced the additional charges against Minger, including 34 charges of possession of child pornography and 34 charges of producing child pornography.
Minger, who was being held in Lauderdale County Jail awaiting extradition to South Carolina, was charged Tuesday with 48 counts of possession of child pornography, 48 counts of producing child pornography, four counts of abuse sexual intercourse on a child under 12 and two counts of sodomy in the first degree.
Minger’s bond was initially set at $ 255,000. That amount rose to $ 330,000 with the new charges, although Florence police said he could not post bail on the child pornography charges.
