BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Beaufort County deputies have arrested a 67-year-old Port Royal man on child pornography charges. 

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office charged Joseph Charette Sr. with second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor third-degree. 

BCSO officials say they were contacted by the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office regarding a file containing images of a child in a sexual activity which had been disseminated from an account traced to Charette's home. 

Authorities then executed a search warrant on Dec. 2 and seized computer equipment.
