COLUMBIA, S.C. - A judge says Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene can remain free on a misdemeanor obscenity charge.

Circuit Court Judge James Barber made his decision on Greene during a hearing Thursday in Columbia.

Greene, 33, was indicted in August on misdemeanor and felony charges of showing pornography to a teenage South Carolina college student. He has been free on the felony charge on a $5,000 bond. Barber ruled that the same bond would apply in the misdemeanor case.

Greene, who has not entered a plea to either charge, has declined to comment on his court case and only uttered, "Yes, sir," when Barber asked him if he understood the charge.

Greene won a surprising victory in the June primary to face Sen. Jim DeMint. A day later, The Associated Press was first to report his November campus arrest.
