A Waynesville man is out on $50,000 bond after getting charged with 20 counts of possessing child pornography.
Justin Gabriel Surrett, 34, was initially indicted on the charges earlier this month by a Haywood County Grand Jury. Surrett executed his bond on July 19.
Court documents allege videos not only depicted “prepubescent” minors engaged in sexual acts with adults but also that in many, the children were crying or asking for the abuse to stop. Indictments on some specific charges also allege that children depicted in some videos are “infants” or “toddlers.”
Surrett is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 30.
