GRAPELAND, TX (KTRE) -

A Grapeland man charged with possession of child pornography has resigned from his city council post.

Aaron Wade Pennington, 30, turned in his resignation on Tuesday. The city council made an official announcement on Wednesday, according to Mayor George Pierson.

"He just said he was sorry that he caused harm to the city and asked we keep his family in his prayers," Pierson said.

Pierson said he does not condone the charges against Pennington, but he does stand behind the Pennington family because of their contributions to the city of Grapeland and because he has not yet been proven guilty.
