By The Associated Press

SENATOBIA, Miss. (AP) — A Boy Scouts leader in north Mississippi has been fired and arrested on three counts of sexual battery involving minors and a charge of possession of child pornography.

The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/M1tBTZ) reports Senatobia police arrested 41-year-old William Todd Brewer late last week from his Tate County home, about 40 miles south of Memphis.

Brewer appeared in Justice Court Tuesday and was ordered held in the county jail without bond.

Tate County Sheriff Brad Lance says two of Brewer’s alleged victims are younger than 14 years old. A third was either 14 or 15. Lance didn’t say whether the teens were associated with the Boy Scouts.
