A North Carolina man has been charged with nearly three dozen child sex crimes, the Moore County Sheriff’s Office reports.
James Christopher Davis, 35, has been hit with 17 counts of felony second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and 17 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, according to the sheriff’s office.
Moore County deputies joined with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the FBI on the charges against Davis, which came from “an undercover investigation involving the distribution of child exploitation material on social media.”
“It is up to all of us to be aware of the dangers our children could face on the internet. As your Sheriff, you have my commitment that the Moore County Sheriff’s Office will stay aggressive in the continuous efforts to keep our children safe from online predators and such,” said Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields.
Davis is being held on a $1 million bond with a court appearance set for March 25.
The sheriff’s office did not provide any further details of the case.
