JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. - Charles Young is in jail facing ten charges related to child pornography, according to court documents.

The charges allege Young knowingly received child porn of minor males, an indictment states.

Young was once head of the James City County Republican Committee, according to a party official. He also previously served in the same role in Newport News.

Young is married to Williamsburg-James City County School Board member Sandra Young. When reached by phone, Young had no comment.

Jim Kelly, the school board chairman, said the issue wasn't a school board one, but rather one for Sandra and her family.

Charles Young is scheduled to be in court again November 21.
