Child Porn Charges Involving Infants

A man has been arrested on child pornography and child sexual abuse charges in the east involving infants after an undercover sting.

Arrest warrants say two infants were abused and images of the abuse were sent to an undercover FBI agent.

Meredith Cook Junior, 45-years-old of Jamesville in Martin County, is charged with first degree sex offense with a child and first and second degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Warrants say Cook is accused of sexually abusing the 10-month old and sending images of both being sexually abused to an undercover agent.

Martin County deputies arrested Cook at his home on Grey Farm Road and he's in jail under a 5-million dollar bond.

An investigator says they continue to look into the case because there could be additional victims.

WITN is working on getting a mugshot of Cook and will post it as soon as it's available.
