Highway Patrol Employee Fired, Charged With Child Porn

A civilian Highway Patrol employee was fired and then arrested by Apex police on child porn charges.

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.

Because of the initial investigation, the SBI was brought in to conduct a criminal probe for unauthorized use and misappropriation of a state-issued computer.

Taylor's in the Wake County jail on a $800,000 bond.
