Former Warm Springs Postmaster, Arrested On Child Pornography Charges, Waives His Preliminary Hearing

Warm Springs, VA – A former Warm Springs postmaster who was arrested on child pornography charges has waived his preliminary hearing. Gregory Charles McMullen of Alleghany County was arrested on January 24 and charged with sixteen felony counts of production of child pornography and one felony count of indecent liberties with a minor under the age of 15.

According to Special Agent James T. Morris of the Virginia State Police, McMullen waived his preliminary hearing on Friday February 24, so the case will now go to the grand jury. A preliminary hearing is held to determine if there is enough probable cause for a case to go to a grand jury.

McMullen is being held without bail at the Alleghany County Regional Jail. Special Agent Morris says the investigation is ongoing and more charges are possibly pending.
When the case goes to the grand jury on April 9, the grand jury will determine if there is enough evidence to set the case for trial.

McMullen, age 64, was postmaster at Warm Springs for 29 years. He retired in October 2005.
