Murphy, NC man arrested on child pornography charges

Posted: Updated:

MURPHY, NC (WRCB) -- A 38-year-old Murphy North Carolina man was arrested Wednesday on allegations of downloading and distributing child pornography.

Scot Earl Bull was booked on ten counts related to the possession and transmission of obscene material depicting minors. His bail was set at $75,000.

Bull was arrested at his home in Murphy, North Carolina on Wednesday afternoon after the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office conducted a search of Bull's residence the previous day.

The investigation began approximately three weeks earlier, when the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office became aware that child pornographic images were being downloaded and distributed from a computer linked to the residence.

A forensic search of computers at the residence confirmed that child pornography was present on and being shared from a computer at Bull's residence.
