Deputies in Craven County say 25-year-old Paul Turco has been charged with two felony counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and two felony counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Officials say in August of 2017, Turco was put on probation for possessing child porn and was required to register as a sex offender.

In December, North Carolina Department of Public Safety officers conducted a warrantless search of his home and found suspicious items on his computer. After a forensic examination, they discovered he possessed child pornography.
