SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A special prosecutor says he won't file criminal charges against a South Bend Common Council member for posting obscene material on his Facebook page.

Kosciusko County Prosecutor Daniel Hampton said in a report released Monday that Henry Davis Jr. didn't understand he was breaking the law, so he "lacked the requisite criminal intent" to be charged.

Some city residents complained in January when Davis posted an explicit photo of a naked man and a dog with a link to a blog that said Congress had legalized sex between humans and animals for members of the military.

Hampton noted that Davis expressed his disgust with the content of the photo and that some people who complained of Davis' actions also linked to the obscene material.
