      Sidney Moorer has been charged with two counts of Indecent Exposure, and one count of Obstruction of Justice, the same charges Tammy Moorer faces.

      According to the Horry County Public Index, Sidney and Tammy Moorer have both posted bond.

      However, they will remain behind bars as they await the possibility of more charges, according to Horry County Solicitor, Jimmy Richardson.

      Judge Dennis Phipps granted Sidney Moorer a $5,000 cash surety bond for each count of the indecent exposure counts, and a $10,000 cash surety bond for the count of obstruction of justice, totaling $20,000.

      Sidney Moorer was not represented by an attorney at the hearing.

      His trial is scheduled for June 27.

      Judge Phipps says Sidney Moorer faces up to ten years for the obstruction of justice charge, and up to three years for each of the two indecent exposure counts.

      How these charges relate to Heather Elvis, who went missing more than 2 months ago, is still unknown.

      "Anything that we release at this point could jeopardize the case we've got to be really tight fisted on of that stuff. Certainly not trying to deprive the public or the family of any information but right now it could do more harm than it could do good," explained Horry County Solicitor Jimmy Richardson.

      Richardson added that both his office along with law enforcement will continue to investigate and plans on filing more severe charges against both Sidney and his wife Tammy Moorer.

      As of Saturday evening, the Horry County Solicitor's Office says there's a hold on Tammy and Sidney Moorer which means they can't bond out until these further charges we're waiting on are released.

      Tammy Moorer and her husband Sidney Moorer were taken into custody Friday morning at their home in connection to the disappearance of Heather Elvis.
