Local man charged with child pornography

A Florence man faces multiple charges of producing and possessing pornography involving a teenage girl from the Shoals.

Officers arrested Charles Ray Fountain Jr, 51, yesterday after they recovered 182 videotapes from his home.

Fountain was charged with two counts of production of obscene matter and single counts of possession of obscene matter, permitting or allowing a child to engage in the production of obscene matter and first-degree sexual abuse.

A 15 year old girl was seen on three of the tapes taken from Fountain's home.

Investigators are trying to determine if any other minor children were involved.

Fountain is being held in the Lauderdale Detention Center.

Bail is set at $500,000.
