According to reports, Yester was booked on Thursday and released after posting $35,000 bond the same day.

He is reportedly facing 30 counts of possession of child porn.

The Lovin' Spoonful members were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of fame in 2000.

The group was a family affair as Jerry's brother Jim, and daughter Lena, also took part.

Yester was married to songwriter Judy Henske, known as the "Queen of the Beatniks," but they divorced in 1971.

The musician, who once played 12 different instruments on an album, was also a previous member of The New Christy Minstrels and Modern Folk Quartet.

Yester's shocking arrest came the same week Glee star Mark Salling pleaded guilty of possessing 50,000 child porn photos and videos.
