GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) - A Gibson County attorney running for Gibson County Prosecutor is accused of having sex with a client as a way to pay off her debt.

William Wallace, 57, was indicted on Tuesday.

Indiana State Police say a criminal investigation was launched in spring 2009 after the victim reported the incident.

A month later, a search warrant was obtained for Wallace's house.

Detectives say once inside his home, they found DVDs of the victim engaging in sexual acts with the Wallace on several occasions.

Detectives say they also found child pornography on his computer.

Wallace went before the Gibson County Grand Jury on Tuesday.

Wallace's initial court appearance is set for July 2.

A special prosecutor has been appointed from Vanderburgh County because Wallace is running against the current Gibson County prosecutor.
