James Taylor is facing 20 counts of second degree exploitation of a minor.

The 45-year-old Apex man was assigned to the patrol's technical services unit. A Highway Patrol news release says Taylor was fired because of an on-going criminal investigation relating to him having child pornography on his personal computer.
