BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A 19-year-old man is in jail charged with posting sexually explicit photos of a 16-year-old girl online.

Brunswick County Sheriff’s detectives arrested James Rudolph Brown IV, 19, of Earla Loop Road in Bolivia, for first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Deputies started investigating after getting a report that sexually explicit photos of a girl had been posted on the photo-sharing social networking site Instagram. Detectives say Brown had sent the pictures of the girl to an Instagram account whose user then posted them online.

According to an arrest warrant Brown got the 16-year-old to participate in oral sex to take the pictures.

The Sheriff’s Office says the investigation in this case continues and more charges are expected to be filed.

Brown is in jail under a $250,000 bond.

    I’m not sure why this story is circulating again as a pop-up but I still feel compelled to reply. These charges stem from distributing pornography and violating privacy statutes.

    You would think differently if it was your 16 year old daughter.

    Pretty sad that oral sex is against the law in NC. 90% of the citizens of NC would be locked up if caught. Even law makers have had oral sex or performed oral sex and if they claim they haven’t then they are a true politician that lies through their teeth.

    Its time for that arcane law to be removed from NC law. The age of consent is 16 in NC. If a young women want to perform oral sex on a 19 year old so be it. The 19 year old can die for his country in a war but can’t get oral sex. It just makes no sense.

    To the issue of posting the pics online I agree was a bad decision for the 19 year old. It broke privacy of the 16 year old in my view.

    Let’s be clear. The law for consensual sex in NC was raised from 14 years of age to 16 years of age in just 1995.

    So up until 1994 you could have sex with a 14 year old. Pretty sad NC. If the oral sex was not forced then no reason to lock p this 19 year old.

    People, you should teach your teens some moral values. Your sons need to learn to respect females and if in a sexual relationship with them not take photos and brag about it. and teach your daughters that as teens not to go around sucking mens/boys d–cks! . great day!!!!

    They were both in the wrong. what’s the world coming to with all these sexual “selfies” and messaging private body parts around?? not only teens but adults to it. to many perverted people running around. sex addicts, I guess???
