Child Porn Charges Dismissed Against Former Maryville City Councilman; Faces Lesser Charge

A former Maryville City Councilman arrested in August of last year on two counts of possession of child pornography has been cleared from those charges.  48 year old Shawn Wake of Maryville now faces a new, lesser charge of three counts of invasion of privacy.  If convicted of the lesser charge, Wake would not have to register as a sex offender.  The judge in the case has reportedly recused himself, so proceedings will resume following the appointment of a new judge.
