Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether’s pal, fired fire chief Jim Sideras, has been arrested on ten counts of possession of child pornography. So says this press release from the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Department:

Note that the bond on Sideras is $10,000, four times the bond slapped on Ehab Jaber. The court apparently feels that a man accused of possessing child porn is a greater threat than a man accused of making a terroristic threat.
Sideras, like all defendants in America, is innocent until proven guilty. The charges, if they have merit, do not appear to involve any public corruption that would implicate Huether or other city officials.
