Senate Candidate a Library Criminal?

Is this possible, a US Senate candidate is a library criminal?  Did the Democratic Party's nominee in South Carolina, Alvin Greene, display porn to and possibly molest a college student in a college library at the University of South Carolina?  If so, if the obscenity charge is proven, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), Greene's opponent, will likely be easily reelected, and I'd like to know exactly how did library security fail.

Here are some articles and direct quotes on the topic:
Now it comes to pass that Greene faces obscenity charges based on allegations that he showed a young girl pornography on his library computer screen and made lewd comments to her.
She seems credible, which fills me with heart-ache.  Can "America's candidate" really be a dirty, dirty lech?  Watch to the end or you'll miss her mom describing where, precisely, the incident happened.  Initially I thought she and Greene were attending the same college and had a chance encounter in the computer lab.  Not quite, not quite.
Greene, who has yet to enter a plea or be indicted, was arrested in November and charged with "disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity" in Richland County, S.C., and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

The U.S. Senate candidate was captured on video surveillance Nov. 4 trying to show "obscene photographs from a website" to a female victim on the University of South Carolina campus and go to her room without her consent, according to the affidavit.

Alvin Greene received 28% of the vote or 358,276 votes.  See "South Carolina Election Results 2010: Jim Demint Wins Another Senate Term," by Staff Writers, The Washington Post, 3 November 2010.
