ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. (WAVY) — An Isle of Wight County pastor and City of Franklin employee was arrested for a second time Wednesday, on 11 additional child pornography charges.

Authorities arrested Christopher Alan Hogge in May on distribution of child pornography charges.

Investigators say they recovered more than 3,000 pornographic videos and photos after executing a search warrant at his home earlier this year.

The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office says the additional charges are a result of “extensive forensic review” of electronic devices that were seized from his home.

The new charges Hogge is facing include one count of distribution of child pornography and 10 counts of 2nd offense distribution of child pornography.

The Sheriff’s Office says Hogge was out on a $25,000 bond, but has now been remanded to Western Tidewater Regional Jail with no bond.
