A former Beallsville, Ohio, postmaster who already served time for having sex with young boys is facing charges again.

Paul Mellott, 52, is back in jail after he allegedly was looking at child pornography at the Monroe County Public Library.

Woodsfield Police Chief Chuck Hamilton said police caught Mellott in the act of viewing the material on the library computer.

Hamilton said police received a tip about the alleged crime after Mellott wrote to his friends in prison referencing the pornography.

Mellott is a registered sex offender who was released from prison in December 2011.

He was originally convicted of sex crimes after police caught him in the Canton area meeting young boys whom he met on the Internet for sex.
