Memphis man accused of having more than 200 images, videos of child pornography, records show

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man is facing charges after more than 200 images and videos of child pornography were found in his possession, court records show.

Sir Charles Pearson is facing multiple charges of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Court documents show Memphis police received a complaint from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) in June that someone in the Memphis area had uploaded 10 pictures categorized as “apparent child pornography” in an online cloud account.

Google reported finding the images and submitted them to the NCMEC along with the account owner’s information, officials said.

The images and information were then given to MPD for investigation.

After investigators with MPD viewed the pictures and confirmed that each image depicted children engaging in sexual activity that violated Tennessee state law, search warrants were submitted to Google and to the suspect’s phone carrier and email provider, T-Mobile.

The search warrant uncovered 185 more pictures and 16 videos. Emails also suggested that Pearson was trading pictures with others.

According to court documents, Pearson was arrested and admitted to taking nude pictures of children and trading the photos with other people.

He has a court appearance scheduled for Monday, September 13.
