A preliminary hearing for a Franklin county pastor facing child pornography charges was waived Tuesday morning. Keith Bell of Shippensburg is the pastor of Upper Strasburg Church of God. Police say Bell downloaded and shared a number of files that show images of children engaged in sexually graphic acts and poses. Officers seized four laptops and other electronic media from his home.
