ZEBULON — Franklin County authorities have brought charges against a man accused of possessing child pornography.

Kurk Allen Brewington, 61, was arrested by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office on Aug. 31, according to a press release. He is facing 12 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The sheriff’s office did not explain the charge or describe the case. Under state law, a person is guilty of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor if they “possesses material that contains a visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity.”

Brewington was arrested at his home on Carlyle Road near Zebulon, which is in Franklin County. He was held under a $500,000 secured bond.

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force of the N.C. State Bureau of Investigations and the Computer Crimes Unite of Homeland Security Investigations aided the investigation, the release said.
