Back in March, 53-year-old David Glenn Boyd, of Wheelwright, turned himself in to authorities after a Floyd County grand jury indicted him for distribution of child pornography. Last week, he was also indicted by a federal grand jury.

During a hearing in U.S. District Court in Pikeville yesterday, he pleaded not guilty to the federal charges. A trial date was set for Dec. 11. He was ordered to be held in jail until that time.

A Wheelwright native, Boyd served as pastor of Wheelwright Baptist Church from 2012 until January of this year. He also helped found the Wheelwright Youth Fellowship Center in 1998.
