Former Little Rock Scoutmaster Arrested for Child Porn Possession

April 15, 2006 - Posted at 12:40 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ In Little Rock, a former Boy Scoutmaster has

been arrested on a charge of possession of child pornography.

Sixty-one-year-old Charles E. ``Chick'' Hoffman pleaded innocent in

Little Rock District Court and was released on a

ten-thousand-dollar bond. Police say Hoffman dropped off film at a

Little Rock store, where employees discovered photos of a naked

child. Hoffman told police the photos were NOT taken for a sexual

purpose. Last year, Hoffman was sued by an adult claiming he had

``recovered memories'' of being sexually assaulted by Hoffman in

the early 1970s. The man sued the Quapaw Area Council of the Boy

Scouts of America, Our Lady of the Holy Souls Catholic Church and

the church's parochial school, claiming he was sexually abused by

Hoffman decades earlier. A hearing on the lawsuit is scheduled for

Tuesday in Pulaski County Circuit Court.

    Recently Region 8 News aired a story that got the attention of our editorial board. A long-standing rule at Peddlers Bar & Bistro in New York limits anyone dining with children to one alcoholic beverage, in order to hopefully limit the danger children face from drunk drivers.
