Moncks Corner man arrested on child porn charges

David Pearson of Moncks Corner, 46, was arrested Oct. 24, 2012, on child porn charges.

Another Berkeley County man has been arrested on child pornography charges.

David Scott Pearson, 46, of Moncks Corner was arrested Wednesday. A Berkeley County undercover officer downloaded child porn from Pearson Sept. 30, and then deputies found child porn on his computers when they searched his house Monday, according to the S.C. Attorney General’s Office.

Pearson was charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and released on $50,000 bail. He was also ordered to have no contact with children under the age of 16, no electronic communications devices other than a land-line telephone and no Internet use. He was also ordered to stay away from schools, malls and child playgrounds and not to live within a mile of a school.

Pearson’s two young children were placed in the custody of Pearson’s mother.

Last week, Berkeley County deputies arrested Scott Douglas Marriott, 36, of Summerville after investigators said they downloaded child pornography from him and found illicit files on his computer, including images of adults having sex with babies.
