Most Wanted suspect surrenders after emailing porn, cops say


Police say the man wanted for emailing porn to a Charleston County School District secretary surrendered to authorities Monday morning, roughly 2 weeks after he was featured as one of Live 5 News' Most Wanted suspect.

Brian Javon Sherald, 28, turned himself in at the Charleston Police Department around 4:30 a.m. Monday. His bond was set at $100,000.

He was wanted on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor second degree for allegedly e-mailing child porn to a secretary at the Charleston County School District office on Calhoun Street in January.

"He claimed that the person or one of the people involved in the actual child pornographic video is the son of his girlfriend. I guess in an attempt to possibly blackmail her," said Detective Doug Gallucio.

"The video was not of anybody in this area and not shot in the area."

Gallucio said the child porn took the secretary completely by surprise.

"The porn came out of left field, no idea, what or why or how, attached to an e-mail he sent off."

Gallucio said investigators spoke with Sherald several times on the phone and he promised to turn himself in, but had failed to keep that promise, until Monday.
