CHARLES COUNTY, Md. (ABC7) — A 10-year-veteran Charles County Sheriff's (CCSO) was arrested and charged Monday with possession of child porn, authorities said Tuesday.
Alexander C. Sullivan, 37, has been suspended by the Sheriff's office. Authorities say Sullivan will not receive pay during the suspension and it will last until a verdict in the case is delivered.
The CCSO says they were contacted by representatives at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) after officials there detected someone uploading child porn from a cell phone in Charles County. Once the phone number was turned over to CCSO, officials say they discovered the number belonged to Sullivan.
Authorities say they are continuing to investigate the incident.
