LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A former Little Rock pastor is under arrest once again.
Former pastor Shane Montgomery is facing charges of computer child pornography and failure to register as a sex offender.
LRPD detectives got a tip that Montgomery may have pornographic photos of juveniles on his Twitter account.
When Montgomery showed up for his sex offender verification appointment, police asked him about the alleged pornography. It was then police learned that Montgomery failed to tell police he had a social media account, which sex offenders are not allowed to have.
Detectives arrested him for violating his sex offender requirements and checked his phone. On it is where they found the pictures. Detectives later learned, after talking to him, there were possibly more photos on his home computer and other devices.
In 2009, Montgomery plead guilty to fourth degree felony sexual assault. He was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a teenage boy.
He was the pastor of River Church at the time of his arrest. He resigned shortly after.
He was sentenced to one year in jail and required to register as a sex offender.
