FLORENCE, Ala. -- A Florence police captain has been formally charged in a child pornography investigation stemming from images uploaded from a police computer.

Authorities said Capt. Basil Kenny "Ken" Stanley, 49, has been charged with using office and home computers to send and receive images of children engaging in explicit sexual conduct.

Stanley, a veteran officer of more than 26 years, was scheduled for a detention hearing Wednesday in Huntsville.

Police Chief Rick Singleton said Stanley passed out twice after he was told about the allegations against him Monday. Stanley has been placed on administrative leave without pay.

The investigation began when the FBI notified Florence police on June 12 about "unlawful images" uploaded from a department computer.

Stanley was taken into FBI custody Monday.
