Former U.S. Congressman Mel Reynolds pleads not guilty to charges of possessing pornographic images. Reynolds was arrested earlier this week at a hotel in Zimbabwe. A charge sheet said Reynolds had nude photos and videos of men and women having sex on his phone. Possession of pornography is illegal in Zimbabwe. The 62-year-old also faces charges of staying in the country without a valid visa. Reynolds has a history of run-ins with the law. He resigned from Congress in 1995 after being convicted of sexual assault, obstruction of justice, and solicitation of child pornography.
