According to a press release issued this afternoon by the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office:
• Joshua C. Wagner, 41, was booked and released on a $75,000 bond.
• Wagner’s arrest came after a Sullivan County grand jury returned an indictment on the 50 counts of sexual exploitation earlier this week.
• The case was presented to the grand jury after the SCSO received information that suspected child pornography images were being downloaded from the Internet at an address in Blountville. A search warrant was executed on the residence on February 15, and numerous electronic devices were seized and examined.
• The investigation is still continuing and no more information can be released at this time.
