DOVER, DEL. — The state Attorney Generalís Office say an airman at Dover Air Force Base has been charged with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography.

Prosecutors say that 37 year-old Joel W. Thorpe was arrested Monday. He is being held on $375,000 cash bail. It could not be immediately determined if Thorpe has a lawyer.
